The Biography of Kip McKean:
Founder of the International Christian Churches, MERCYworldwide, and the International College of Christian Ministries
Since we live in an age in which the proliferation of information is often distorted, I have sought to carefully investigate and document with first-hand accounts – including my own – the incredible story of the spread of Christianity from the 1970’s to this very day. The primary purposes of this narration are to honor God with the truth and to encourage those who have never had the dream – or perhaps have lost it – to share in Jesus’ dream of the evangelization of “all nations.” (Matthew 28:19-20) Much of this rich history is intertwined with the life of my “partner in the gospel” Kip McKean. Therefore, using many of his experiences as a timeline – his faith, his faults and his rekindled fire – allows a detailed rendering for this “orderly [historical] account.” (Luke 1:1-4; Acts 1:1) Please set aside a time when you have at least an hour to read this whole document to perhaps discover for the first time what happened to what for many of us was “our family” and what God now wants us to do.
