Religion & Race

Since the work of the Conference Commission on Religion & Race (CCORR) – as an outgrowth of the General Commission of Religion & Race (GCORR) – is to engage and embrace the cultural diversity that is present in our congregations and communities in Florida, the ministry of CCORR can positively enhance the mission and vision of the Florida Conference in 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 more missional community of faith—the community that makes disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world
