​The Forum Prayer

Jesus prayed: "I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me." -John 17:20-21​

"Lord Jesus, help me to make my own your prayer for the unity of your followers—and let this prayer be costly to me. Amen." -Bernard de Margerie


The Southern California Christian Forum (SCCF), formerly the Southern California Ecumenical Council (SCEC), is a regional body representing churches, denominations, related ministries, and other ecclesiastical communities who cooperate to promote responsible and creative expressions of our Christian unity and witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ.



The SCCF carries out its mission by co-sponsoring events with churches, universities, and ministries throughout the region that desire to live out more faithfully and visibly the call to Christian unity. Through prayer services, sponsored lectures, and Bible studies, we create spaces for Christian leaders to encounter each other and bridge divides across ethnic and denominational lines.
