GCORR Is Changing

General Commission on Religion & Race

The General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR), created by The United Methodist Church in 1968, was the vehicle through which the denomination invited all people to a common table to engage in new conversations around a truly inclusive Church.

Today, the work of GCORR is aligned with the three areas of our Ministry Model:

  • Institutional Equity: Building systems, policies, and processes that level the playing field for all;
  • Vital Conversations: Developing authentic relationships where lives, churches, and communities are transformed; and
  • Intercultural Competency: Having the skills and awareness to build relationships across cultures. 

GCORR continues to lead the Church into new conversations as we seek to build the capacity of The United Methodist Church 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.
