It’s no surprise to anyone whose been in a cult before that the leadership changes and names change anytime a controversy is stirred up. When I started blogging, my old group was still called MCID, or Master’s Commission Industries. We were a ministry out of Our Savior’s Church in Broussard, LA. After the blog gained popularity, the old director, Nathan* was fired and a new director Greg* was put in charge. Greg* had been mentored by Nathan* and Tim*, so the teachings and spirit of it all stayed the same.
When Lloyd Zeigler kicked MCID out of the MC International Network, the students were told that MCID left MCIN intentionally. Riiight. Unfortunately, those kids knew no difference and were loyal to their leaders. Some even argued with me via email/FB/text that I was wrong. I remember being in their shoes–innocent and naive, believing my leaders cared about me and were trustworthy and honorable. When I questioned the kids about the current schedule and activities, not a damn thing had changed. I believe they changed the group names but the core of the program stayed the same. MCID then changed their name, as if I would never find out. Oh my! You’re so sneaky. I’ll never find you.
Since the beginning of this blog, in an attempt to ‘clean up’ their reputation, MCID has gone through a myriad of changes-but it looks like they think the dust has settled enough to introduce the new ‘image’ and name.
They’ve called it Summit School of Leadership and the description is the same as it always was. Looks like nothing has changed.
