Religion & Race

 The work of the Conference Commission on Religion and Race (CCORR) – as an outgrowth of the General Commission of Religion and Race (GCORR) – is to engage and embrace the cultural diversity that is present in our congregations and communities in Florida. Like GCORR, we will challenge and equip the church to complete the unfinished business of dismantling racial discrimination  by championing diversity, equity and inclusion. 

 The ministry of CCORR can positively enhance the mission and vision of the Florida Conference in the following ways: 

First, by building the capacity of The United Methodist Church to be more contextually relevant through Institutional Equity, we can enhance our mission to be changed in Christ and to make change in the world, both locally and globally. 

Second, through vital conversations, the work of CCORR provides practical resources and equips effective servants by training them for cross racial and cross cultural appointments before they start their new appointment such as “Our Beloved Community,” “POV for Race,” and “POV for Justice.” 

Third, through Intercultural Competency, our ministry connects and equips congregations in Florida by providing resources that will help congregations to become a more missional community of faith – the community that makes disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
