Stories of Transformation





“The ICC community has helped me be with like-minded Christian families sharing the same vision to impact the culture around us, creating safe and encouraging environments for my kids to learn to be better communicators.”




“The skills ICC taught me are vital in our lives, and yet, many adults in our community that I’ve spoken to lack these skills. I see a need for these skills in the UK!”




“ICC helps students build the skills necessary for success: the fundamentals of communication, bringing a business plan to life, creating change, and more! The training is invaluable!”

Our Board Members

Dr. Teresa Moon

Founding President/CEO

When Teresa Moon was a university student, public speaking made her physically ill.  Now she is an internationally recognized seminar speaker, education consultant, author, and leadership coach. She designs state-of-the-art digital immersive learning environments and in-person experiences that provide training for students, teachers, and parents across the globe to become “cultural communicators” who can impact culture through relevant communication and extraordinary leadership. Her Tennessee home doubles as the institute’s training center, accommodating dozens of high school and college students at a time in leadership residencies. Teresa’s students have been invited to speak on tens of thousands of platforms—digital and physical—to influence audiences for Christ—including the White House, Congress, the G8 Summit, the United Nations, and churches, schools, and heads of state in more than twenty nations.

Dr. John McLean

Physician, Entrepreneur, and ICC Board Member

Dr. John McLean sees a better future — he’s a visionary and an entrepreneur. His latest project is the building and running of a new kind of hospital: the neighborhood hospital.  All of his six children received years of ICC training, and he’s convinced that his two grandchildren, who participate in an ICC chapter currently, will be prepared for their futures because of it. Southeast Asia is special to him; three of his  children are of from this area, and he has done years of work with a Philippine orphanage. He believes in the benefit of the ICC training and has frequently backed that up with donations to make it possible for students to experience the transformation of the ICC community.
