Los Angeles Church of Christ

Sep 4th, 2010 | By | Category: International Christian Church ICC, Kip McKean, marking

September 6, 2005  The LA leadership is now distancing themselves from McKean,

“We, here in LA, did not believe that “The Portland Story” reflected the spirit in which the Lord desired to initiate unity.  Rather than a spirit that included threats, intimidation and arrogance, we believed that our brotherhood challenges needed to be tackled by a collective plan, not one that focused on a single congregation or person as the primary source for answers.”

October 18, 2006 – Los Angels International Church of Christ publicly marks Kip McKean.

“Because of these unrepentant deceitful and divisive actions, and after careful consideration, we are publicly marking Kip McKean, the force behind these efforts, Sal Valasco, the local leader of this faction, and whoever else promotes this action with them.”


LAICC  Ministry Employment Positions

This document that gives descriptions of the LAICC Ministry positions in Jan 2005 (with a code for different categories) and gives a salary range for each one.  Here are some specific things to take into account from this sheet:

  • The salary figures are based on someone being full-time and having no geographic cost of living adjustment
  • These salary figures INCLUDED parsonage (for example, if this sheet says salary is 75,000, then $30,000 might be designated as “parsonage” which would leave $45,000 as “salary”)  In other words, they did not receive a parsonage on top of the amount on this sheet.
  • These figures DID NOT INCLUDE any benefits (health, dental, retirement, etc.)
  • These figures DID NOT INCLUDE any personal business reimbursements.

LAICC Hay Model Salary Calculator

This excel document  was originally used at the end of 2003 to calculate salaries based on the new Hay Model.  It has been updated with the 2005 Salary figures from the document above.  (Except the admin salaries are still the 2003 figures because we haven’t received an update on their figures in 2005).  One of the worksheets lists the minimum and maximum salary amounts based on the definitions from the document above.   The second worksheet is a sample region put together just to show what items were factored in to determine where someone’s salary actually fell in the range.  Here are things to take into account on this sheet:

  • Once a woman staff person had a child, they were determined to be “part time” and their salary would be adjusted down to 65% of what the salary range dictated.  This 65% pay factor is used in the sample region.
  • There was also a geographic cost of living adjustment that would be made based on which part of the LA Church you lived.  The .pdf assumes no geographic cost of living adjustment, (so the multiplier would be 1.0).  Our source states that when he lived there, no region of the LA Church would have been 1.0.  To his knowledge, the lowest region was 1.10.  He also speculates that some of the more expensive areas (such as O.C) would have had a multiplier in the range of 1.2 or 1.3, but that is just a guess.  For the sample sheet, a multiplier of 1.10 to show the lowest possible in LA.
  • As indicated in the .pdf, there is a RANGE of salary for each position.  This is based on longevity.  P(25) is the industry standard for each position.  The actual salary could fall anywhere in the range allowed.  This means a person would START at the bottom of the range (usually 85% or 90% of the P(25) industry standard) then MAX OUT at the top of the range (always 110%) of the range.  How fast they went through that range depends on the position.  The .pdf file indicated the amount of pay increase per year for each position.  In the sample sheet, we have tried to show how it works.  The formulas are pretty complicated.
