International Churches of Christ - Rankings by Area (Metro-Areas) [Counties] [States]

The International Churches of Christ (ICOC) was founded in 1979 under the leadership of Kip McKean. McKean led his formerly Churches of Christ (Non-instrumental) congregation to begin a rapidly growing international movement built upon one-on-one discipleship of older believers to younger. After accomplishing tremendous missionary goals, the ICOC faced internal chaos in 2000; Kip McKean and his wife eventually stepped down from leadership after their sabbatical, and the association restructured. In the past, some have accused the ICOC of being a cult; these accusations have lessened since the McKean's departure. [View our profile of International Churches of Christ]
