Commission on Religion and Race

The General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR) was established in 1968 to hold the newly formed United Methodist Church accountable in its commitment to reject the sin of racism in every aspect of the life of the church.

The Minnesota Commission on Religion and Race (MNCORR) focuses on building the capacity of the Minnesota Conference to equip clergy and congregations as they grow in their anti-racist discipleship and cross-cultural competency. MNCORR believes that following Jesus and opposing oppression are mutually intertwined—there is no discipleship without social transformation.

In addition, MNCORR supports the Conference Director of Racial Justice and Equity work to:

  • Prepare clergy and congregations for cross-racial and cross-cultural appointments.
  • Build a system of mutual support for BIPOC clergy.
  • Support Annual Conference staff, ministry teams and Extended Cabinet in evaluating their systems and practices on a regular basis and there is intentional growth in becoming a conference that embraces and lives out the richness of diversity as outlined in our vision.
