Biographical Note

Rhymes H. Moncure, Jr. was born in Oakland, California to Estelle Moncure, a school teacher, and naval officer Rhymes H. Moncure. He attended Missouri Baptist College (B.A., 1974), St. Paul School of Theology (M.Div., 1977), San Francisco Theological Seminary, and Carolina University School of Theology (D.Min.). Moncure also studied the art of conflict resolution and became a certified practitioner.

The Kansas East Conference of the United Methodist Church (UMC) ordained Moncure a Deacon in 1975 and an Elder in 1977. His thirty-two years of ministry included pastoral appointments in Kansas and Missouri and administrative appointments as superintendent of the St. Louis South District, director of Congregational Development for the Missouri East Conference, and executive director for Urban Ministries in the Kansas East Conference.

Moncure taught in many Jurisdictional and Annual Conference Schools of Christian Mission. He was also instrumental in organizing the 2000 United Methodist General Conference Act of Repentance and Reconciliation for racism. Moncure’s denominational leadership included terms on the General Board of Global Ministries, the General Commission on Christian Unity and Interreligious Concerns, the General Council on Ministries, and the UMC University Senate. He also served on the boards of the United Methodist Publishing House, Southern Methodist University, Southwestern University, Nebraska Wesleyan University, St. Paul School of Theology, and Mount Sequoyah Conference and Retreat Center.

In 2000 Moncure was elected to the episcopacy and appointed to serve the Nebraska Area of the UMC. In 2004 he became the first African American to serve as bishop of the Dallas Area of the UMC. After Bishop Moncure’s untimely death in 2006, the North Texas Annual Conference established a memorial scholarship fund to benefit medical students attending Africa University in Zimbabwe. In 2007 the North Texas Conference named its new Ministry Center chapel in his memory.

Rhymes H. Moncure, Jr. married Jewell Lena Wells on August 6, 1968. They had a son and a daughter, Jason and Roxanne.
