Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church

 

Commission on Religion and Race

"The General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR) was created by The United Methodist Church in 1968 to address the turbulent and exciting unrest, disease, hope and new possibilities unleashed as legalized racial segregation and separation were being dismantled in church and society.

The Commission was the vehicle through which the denomination invited white people and people of color to a common table to tackle institutional racism, engage in new conversations about what a truly desegregated and global church could look like, and chart a course for living out the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a more authentic and all-people-embracing way."

-from the General Commission on Religion and Race website.

The work of the Oklahoma Conference Commission on Religion and Race exists to do the work of GCORR on our annual conference level.
