The Biography of Dr. 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.

    It is imperative to read this ENTIRE website to know the roots of God's Modern day Movement and how it all began. It is very important, in my opinion, not just to read it once but over and over again to keep remind ourselves of the truths and how God has worked to get His message to us!!

    Love you Ron! You're faith and perseverance have continued to bring my heart understanding. You are one of my best friends, and as a "son" in the faith, a brother, thank you for all that you do and stuff like that.

    I really appreciate this website. I don't go to the City of Angels church but I'm glad I can come to this site whenever I want and listen to Kip preach. Kip McKean preaches from the Word of God in a powerful and inspiring way.
