Religion and Race

All are included in God's Circle
Currently, the Commission on Religion and Race (CORR) is in a season of revival and rebuilding in order to live into its duties as described in the 2016 Book of Discipline, paragraphs 643, 202, 208, and 252.2b. This includes our members receiving training such as the Intercultural Development Inventory and classes offered by the General Commission on Religion and Race.

Our mission as described by the General CORR is that we are to be "... challenging and equipping the church to complete its unfinished agenda of dismantling racial discrimination. We continue to do this by championing diversity, equity, and inclusion; developing interculturally competent leaders, and catalyzing authentic community."

Among our more immediate North Alabama Conference goals, we want to conduct racial identity audits of all Conference boards, commissions, agencies and committees to gather baseline information and guide our advocacy for change. We also aim to host anti-racism orientation classes for all clergy and lay leaders to acquaint them with the Commission on Religion and Race mission, vision and goals.
