About us

Our Vision

As a result of GCORR's work, the Church at all levels, all around the world, reflects and values the diversity of God.

This aspiration and vision both support the Biblical teachings of Christ, the mission of GCORR and that of the Church. To accomplish this, GCORR is committed to developing new leaders in the church, which will lead to new ideas and innovations that will help the Church adapt to changing times.

Our Mission

"The United Methodist Church in the United States has a future only to the extent that it can find ways to reach more people, younger people, and more diverse people."

--Dr. Lovett Weems

The General Commission on Religion and Race must continue to work toward the goal of eliminating racism while enabling the Church to become contextually relevant and equitable in ever changing global communities.

Our Work

To build the capacity of The United Methodist Church to be contextually relevant.

The work of GCORR is aligned with the three areas of our Ministry Model: Institutional Equity, Vital Conversations and Intercultural Competency.

Our Promise

To provide practical resources and support leaders throughout the Church to help them engage and embrace the cultural diversity present in our congregations and communities.

The General Commission on Religion and Race assists the United Methodist Church around the world to foster intercultural competency and cooperation, live into institutional equity, and engage in straightforward, Christian conversations.

Our Core Values

The Core Values of GCORR are based on the biblical imperative of right relationships with God and one another--relationships of: Love, Grace, Equity, Justice, Respect, and Mutual Accountability.

Our core values represent the ethics of our organization. These are the standards we hold ourselves to internally, as well as when working with our partners and others who may be impacted by our ministry.

GCORR is building 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.
