Commission on Religion and Race

The Commission on Religion and Race (CORR) focuses on building the capacity of the Minnesota Conference to be contextually relevant and to reach more people, younger people, and more diverse people as we make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

One of the key things CORR does is offer intercultural competency training to clergy and lay leaders throughout Minnesota.

This training—which focuses on skills development, theological reflection, and cultural anthropology theory—uses the Kaleidoscope Institute process. It is especially recommended for churches wanting to reach people who speak a different language or come from a different culture, reflect the diversity of the world around them, and find ways to bridge political, theological, or economic divides.
