Like many young men of the 1960’s, he was inspired by those who refused to compromise and were willing to sacrifice everything for a worthy cause.
This temperament is also deep in the Mc Kean family heritage, as they are called higher by the courage of one of their ancestors, Thomas Mc Kean.
In October 2006, after a valiant three-year effort to bring reform to the crumbling International Churches of Christ (ICOC), the Holy Spirit used Kip, soon joined by other valiant disciples on every continent, to initiate the new Portland / Sold Out Discipling Movement!
In May 2007, Kip and Elena Mc Kean – alongside 40 other disciples from Portland – planted the City of Angels International Christian Church, which now has 1,300 at their Sunday Services!
Thomas Wayne Mc Kean II (May 31, 1954 – present) was named after his ancestor Thomas Mc Kean, who was a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
