Kip McKean's $650,000 Condo

(Cussing warning - but it's a quote, and in context. And you'll NEVER guess who it was.)

I was recently reminded of the following:

Kip McKean lives in a $650,000 luxury condo that he purchased in 2010. (For the record, as seen in the link, Kip's legal name is "Thomas Wayne", not "Kip".)

This condo has a special significance to me. This is where I visited Kip in 2011 to talk about lying, theft, abuse and threats by one of his top leaders. And was completely shot down.

If I were better informed about Kip's history, I would have known in advance how the meeting would turn out. Kip would categorically defend the higher leader (Victor), and systematically attack the lower leader (me). Because leadership is from God and leaders are always right. And the most important thing is to maintain order. Leaders on top, and Kip on top of the leaders.

So, my Kip McKean luxury condo meeting was short and ended abruptly. I started talking, and for several seconds started to tell Kip how Victor had lied to me and abused his position in the church to steal from me.

Kip then interrupted me to insist that nothing of the sort had happened. Victor was innocent of all charges (except of possibly being "insensitive"), and that everything was certainly just a "misunderstanding."

Never mind that Victor had already confessed to everything in front of a witness.


However, while Kip's buddy was found mostly innocent, "I", on the other hand, was found very, very guilty.

Why? Because I was guilty of the cardinal sin of the church - I was found to no longer believe all of the (ridiculous, wrong, damaging) things that every member of Kip's churches are supposed to believe.

So, here I was, in Kip's luxury condo, getting shot down.

(It wasn't until much, much later, that the obvious dawned on me - the whole meeting was a setup. Kip and Victor had obviously talked beforehand, and Kip had decided what had happened, and how the meeting would turn out, long before the meeting.)

That was an interesting day. Kip chatted me up at first, while we waited for Victor and Jeremy to get there. Then, I sat in disbelief as lies won out over truth. Then, I listened to Kip say the words "fuck" and "shit" in the same breath. That shattered a bit of my uptight religious sensibilities of the time (even though I was basically atheist by this point.)

(Context - one among the laundry list of concerns I levied about Victor was that he cusses .. something that I questioned as a church leader in a church that explicitly teaches teaches against it. So Kip says, "What did he say? Fuck? Shit? Ass? ...You know, some of words are relative now. 'Butt' used to be a swear word, but now is normal for people to say." Not what I would have expected, although Victor nor Jeremy flinched or blinked.)

Then Elena came in, and I sensed some serious tension between Kip and her. About what? Who knows. But there was snapping going on about things she wanted to do.

So we drew things to a close, Kip gave me a big creepy hug, and I walked back out, past the doors of executives and celebrities, and down towards my junky car, to ask Jeremy, why in the living H. E. double hockey-stick didn't he open his mouth and defend my word against Victor's, since he knew full well he was lying?

... So, $650,000 ... If memory serves, I think there were about 200 members in the City of Angels church in 2010. That would mean, $3,250 per member towards the cost of the condo (ignoring the other 10% or whatever additional cost for closing fees, etc.) Spread out over a year, that would be an average of $270 per member, per month.

Oddly, I remember at the annual financial meeting in 2010 that the entire amount of money the church received in that year was around $650,000.

That's a lot of dollars, all donated with sacrifice by church members.

And whether or not the condo money came out of the sacrifice and contributions of the church members in 2010, or before, or after, ... that's a lot of dollars.

I know for me, I'm sure glad my year-over-year sacrifice of 25% of my annual income, and many personal sacrifices, were able to be put to good use - helping pay for Kip's condo, where I started to see, that the man that I had invested 15 years and two mission teams following, was not much like I had thought, hoped, or been told.

(Here is some more info about Kip's condo.)

    Seems to be registered to the Mckeans or is that a lie? You're just too ignorant to accept that your precious leader could be wrong and just using members for his own personal gain. Why do you worship a sinner anyway? You're supposed to worship God, who cares about Kip, he shouldn't be any higher than your fellow Bro or Sis.

    2. You are full of yourself Kip worse than the devil himself because you have lied to so many people just to have some money. Even your own children don't support your ministry because they know it's a scam. I pray one day you will repent and truly seek God through the help of the Holy Spirit, that's my pray for you. STOP fooling people please. God brought you down the first time, He will do it again, He changes not and He cannot be fooled.

    3. Thanks for posting. The ICOC imploded after so long, and the ICC is just a repeat of the ICOC and is under the same pressures. Every day that it continues is glory time for Kip, who gets to enjoy people worshiping him, doing whatever he says, and even paying him for the privilege. But the new house of cards will tumble just as the old house of cards tumbled. Until that happens, hopefully we can help as many people as possible avoid being taken by the scam.

      Just because YOU don't believe something, doesn't mean isn't true! Real talk: I agree with a lot of what you've posted. However, for you to mock someone on something that's quite vividly mentioned IN the bible, is pretty presumptuous and rude. Everyone believes what they do. Our differences make us human. You're entitled to not "believe", just as others ARE entitled to.

      Just like K.M. telling people to choose "his" church or be damned, you come across similarly with your thought and comment about hell.

  6. The way this blog is presented is not from a godly man, I have concerns that you were on a mission team N in the ministry so long. I to had be in leadership and hurt on the first ICOC, but, never do I slander them to this day, God keeps me! there is too much slander and worldly approach on this article. And to a commentor one here, Calling Kip names and judging him....makes you sound like the very thing YOU accuse HIM of. Sorry, I don't believe a word of this I'd say if this is how you talked in the meetin, this is why you weren't listened to:-) How do I know? I use to struggle with this very thing, getting defensive and prideful, something the Lord has refined in me. If a brother has sinned against you, you MUST forgive, You said he already CONFESSED, So this is not forgiving doing this. And if they are in the wrong? and you think you are warning others? I have not seen one concern rooted in love, No talk of praying for them? BUT Ill pray for your situation. God bless

    4. Bernadine. Please study the Word and how Jesus spoke of the Pharisees. I think you will find that Jesus was not slandering the Pharisees, but he definitely had some strong words against them, and some of those times, they were not present to hear them. Jesus protected his disciples from such people by speaking about those we should be warned about. I think you might change your understanding on what it means to slander.

    1. Kip has three groups of people. Anyone who does what Kip tells them to do, is a hero and is going to be praised by Kip. Anyone who DOESN'T do what Kip tells them to do, is "controlled by Satan" and is going to get ripped to shreds in Kip's eyes. And anyone who Kip thinks may still "come around" and start doing what Kip tells them to do, is somewhere in the middle of those two other groups, until it is clear if the person is going to follow Kip's commands or not.

    3. To Anonymous September 6: If you look back in history, NONE of the people who so staunchly defended the ICOC and Kip McKean with comments like yours back then, still support him today. Whether or not the place is rented or purchased, it is still a luxurious home that is being paid for by the sacrifices and contributions of people who live in much humbler accommodations. Kip and his top leaders are terribly overpaid, and the church cajoles and harangues its (mostly lower-middle-class) members constantly to provide the maximum money possible to continue to pay for the leadership's rich-people lifestyles.

  11. It's hilarious that you bash on Kip McKean for his half a million dollar condo. And yet, you are not boycotting Kim Kardashian as a pseudo celebrity. She earned $89 million for a ridiculous app game that middle schoolers and adults with no life are wasting their time and money on. The Kardashian family is a true cult. The average American focus all their time watching the family reality show and letting the family become rich for not doing anything other than Kim as a 'breakout' porn star and the Kardashian patriarch defending OJ Simpson and Bruce as a famous athelete.

    And don't even get me started on the Church of Scientology with their endless fees for members in order to stay in the church. "Each" scientology member spends hundreds of thousands of dollars to David Miscavige so that he and cult poster boy Tom Cruise can spread the news that alien Lord Xenu created the humans...

    Stop wasting your time on the ICC and start protesting the real cults: the Kardashians and the Church of Scientology.

    1. The reason one feels compelled to talk about Kip etc. is because one was personally lied to by Kip and Co. We speak out in warnig so that others may not fall into the same trap. Kardashian did not make her money lying to people that God said they should do so and that the money they gave was going to be given to the poor and needy and to be used to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Kip is a wicked, lying thief who has been exposed as far back as 2002. The more people know about him the less people there will be falling for his tricks. If blogger here had known what I had already known back in 2002, he would have saved himself much distress and many years and definitely lots of money.

    2. To Anonymous Sept 14: Welcome current ICC member! Thank you so much for your insightful and constructive comments! You are totally correct, and I will now focus all of my attention on informing my readers about the dangers of the Kardashian family. Why couldn't I see this earlier? (Rolling eyes). I hope that after you leave the cult, you will somehow find your way back here and feel remorse and embarrassment for what you have written, and will then work to help free others from the brainwashing that you are still controlled by.

      To Anonymous Oct 1: I sure wish I had known way back in 2002 that Kip and his ministries were a load of BS designed to enrich the few at the cost of the many. Hopefully we can help some other people save themselves from the wasted years and thousands of dollars that get so quickly flushed down the toilet by participating in the ICOC/ICC.

  12. Who are The Kardashians? Do they case college campuses as hunting grounds for new recruits? Do they walk up to strangers and tell them how great they are and invite them to join in on fun? Do they invite nice young people to meetings every week and dictate who they will date-when and where or even marry? Do they use scripture and mind control under the same roof? No, The Kardashians do not. But, ICOC has proven to do all of these things. Very sad that this fringe cult passing as any form of Christianity, founded by a self professed Prophet in 1979, has gotten this far. I do believe this blog and others like it will help those ICOC members who want to leave as well as the families of the fallen (those families who have suffered the loss of a loved one to the IOCC).

    1. The Kardashians did not destroy my life, livelihood and future for over 15 years. However, Kip McKean and his lackeys did. And they did so through an elaborate network and system of lies and control mechanisms, all designed to shut down my brain and make me give all of my time, energy and money to the group, with all "profits" going up the pyramid to the top, where a sick and megalomaniac man sat, seeking more and more power and adulation. So embarrassing to admit that I was a part of that for so long.

  13. I agree with the all the comments above. This anonymous user from September 14 is wrong about claiming the Kardashians are the reason people's lives are in danger. SMH. The Kardashians are not the reason why the world has gone down the drain into the Matrix. But how come no one is talking about the Church of Scientology the user mentioned? Everyone is so focused on the defending the Kardashian family claiming that they didn't use mind control and brainwash people into thinking the Kim Kardashian is a goddess with the biggest butt you've ever seen and that marrying more than one man is acceptable to God. But when the Scientologists are mentioned, everyone turns the other cheek. Is David Miscavige threatening everyone to be hush hush about their Lord Xenu cult? I bet Tom Cruise is bribing everyone to bash on ICOC and ICC members so that he can make more movies to make the entertainment industry richer and steal millions out of people's pockets. I remember walking past a Church of Scientology and seeing members asking people to come inside to take a personality test. These victims dont realize that the Church expect at least $10,000 minimum paid on the spot just to read Dianetics written by a science fiction writer(L. Ron Hubbard)...oh yeah, isn't the Mormon religion founded by a self proclaimed prophet too? Mitt Romney is Mormon. He is a denominational man. 1 Corinthians 1 says that divisions are unbiblical. But what am I saying? Mitt Romney is a capitalist prophet too who also wanted to destroy the lives of all Americans by saying that Mormonism is the true religion and that Americans dont deserve healthcare. Did you know that his sidekick Paul Ryan discouraged paying taxes? He wanted to hoard millions of dollars for himself instead of paying corporate taxes. He also claimed to love God too...Wait, politicians are abusing the word of God for money?????? Where has everyone been? Why aren't the politicians evangelists then? Because they want the money more than they want God. So why isnt McKean in the media? Because David Miscavige wants the attention more and pays all ICOC/ICC haters to keep the attention away from Scientology in hopes that Lord Xenu will become the new Satan that will destroy God's kingdom. Miscavige wants you to think that McKean is Satan in order for you to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to Scientology versus a couple thousand to plant churches all over the world as stated in Matthew 28:18-20. No no no, Lord Xenu will be very upset. Maybe you should call John Travolta and see if Miscavige has tried to expose McKean...No answer back from Travolta? Thought so...

  14. The talk sound pretty bad from her perspective, but before getting too excited about the condo and its value, remember this: Kip's dad is a retired admiral, so we don't know how much of the condo is from his savings, how much is from current and historical gifts from his family, and how much is from the church

    1. Are you a current ICC member? That would explain your obvious confusion on this matter and your desire to defend Kip McKean. The much-repeated lie all around Kip's Kingdom was that (insert whatever local leader's name here)'s expensive house and lifestyle was mostly paid for by a "wealthy relative." It's really amazing how SO MANY evangelists in the ICOC/ICC were able to live so well, and all paid for by benevolent family members that never visited church and that no-one ever knew. But then, later on it all made sense when we found out that the church was LYING and that most lead evangelists earned six-figure incomes from the church. Kip takes hundreds of thousands of dollars out of the church funds each year to pay himself for leading the system of abuse that sadly controls so many people. Kip has no need whatsoever for any help from his retired father. In fact, if you look at what even top military commanders earn, Kip's salary+benefits package is probably several times whatever his dad ever made.

  15. What matters is the appearance of riding a high horse while he insists that believers increase their giving. Watch his ICC sermons. There is one where he flat out disses the NYC church (I believe it was). They have plenty of dough for their local church to more than thrive and he shot them down because they were not generously funding HIS Master Plan of Evangelising the world before Kip dies. You can here the joy evaporate that very moment. Watch his sermons. Everything he preaches bible wise is a twisting and stretching to set up the same tired points. We are being persecuted. We are the one true church. We have the true gospel. Everyone else is lost. It is sin not to tithe. It is sin to doubt Kip. It is sin to think for yourself. It is sin to have a life outside of Kips Kingdom. You must submit to Kips controlling discipline system. It's so tiring and overwhelming to just watch. SO GLAD I AM FREEEEEEEE!!!!

  20. To those who say that Kip's condo "isn't luxurious" or that "650K is a good deal in LA", consider the following:

    (1) How many R&F members of Kip's church live in $650K homes? (Remember, these are the people who are *truly* sacrificing to financially support the church and the leaders' lifestyles).

    (2) A cursory search of any real estate site will show that there are plenty of condos in the LA area way under 650K (just maybe not in ultra-chic neighborhoods like MDR).

    (3) Wasn't Jesus a "man of the people"? Didn't he spend most of his time in common settings with the unwashed masses? Didn't he claim to be "the servant of all"? How then does Kip reconcile his lifestyle choices with Jesus's example?

    (4) I've visited friends in Kip's building; even if the apartments themselves are small, the building/neighborhood is indeed "luxurious" with its own spa, fitness center, pool, rooftop deck, concierge/doorman, and marina/ocean views from the apartment units.

  21. I, too, invested more than a dozen years in the ICoC and I (still) feel your pain. When the Kreite letter came out and we had the wave of change in the ICoC, I was in Minneapolis. Having never been officially in "leadership", I knew that the letter would have severe repercussions. It turned out worse than I thought it would. Pillars of our church disappeared almost overnight. While I initially harbored deep resentment about those that left, a very wise friend of mine - who HAD been in "leadership" - provided some much needed insight: leaders had way more blood on their hands than I did. How they processed their realization of what they had been a part of was really their issue, not mine.

    I fell out of favor with my leadership a few years later and left the church after a stint on the board of directors. That experience really opened my eyes regarding how leaders were compensated. Of course, it was always touted that the leaders COULD have gone into the private sector and made WAY MORE money so we ought to applaud and revere their "sacrifice" of being in the ministry. Well, a six figure income is hardly a sacrifice. Especially when you've got members that are single parents, disabled/special needs, and otherwise financially strapped. Of particular consternation to me was the housing allowance that enabled leaders to live in the fanciest suburbs in the nicest apartments / houses. I was in favor of the church purchasing a parsonage in lieu of the housing allowance for the evangelist. This way, the church would have an asset and a place to conduct business rather than renting office space and such. Also, the parsonage would have been IN THE CITY LIMITS; not in a suburban enclave that reeks of privilege and 'upward mobility'.

    I'm glad I found your blog and I hope that you - and others negatively impacted by the ICoC and its other "branches" - find healing and peace.

  22. I saw/heard Kip M at one of these big conversations in SF in 1985. At the ripe old age of 20 and a brand new Christian I smelled snake oil. I.can't believe 30 years later he's still peddling his followers this distortion of the gospel and they are still buying it. If you are following this man stop it...follow Christ, Read your bible, Kip M and his teachings are not found there.
