Black Methodist for Church Renewal (BMCR), is a recognized ethnic caucus of The United Methodist Church. Its mission is “to raise up prophetic and spiritual leaders who will be advocates for the unique needs of ethnic people in The United Methodist Church.” Even though BMCR’s purpose is to be an agitating force in the United Methodist Church that works to loosen the leashes of racism, the caucus doesn’t miss opportunities to express the love of neighbor to ALL PEOPLE. For that reason, the Memphis Conference BMCR is elated to sponsor a forum that gives vital facts about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in regard to signs and symptoms, safety measures and most importantly the pros and cons of returning to public worship.


BMCR Chair, Mrs. Paula Wooldridge
BMCR Vice-Chair, Rev. Tondala Hayward
