We began in 2002 when Benji and Abbi Rodes moved to Seattle as urban missionaries with the Nazarene Church. Intent on just serving the neighborhood and following the Spirit, they opened a free community venue called “On the House”. The group met in a storefront space on Capitol Hill, serving a need for a free-to-use venue. Church of the Undignified grew out of this project. On the House was a service to the community for six years.
The desire to see people set free also led the church to operate a “Healing House” for four years. This home hosted a discipling community for leaders who were living with individuals recovering from past pains. Because the spiritual darkness was so present in our community, we realized our need and began a desperate search for the Holy Spirit. Our journey has produced in us a passion about the goodness of God and His unquenchable desire to heal and show His glory-goodness to everyone in the Church and in everyday life.
After 3 years of meeting in Central Cinema Theater, we now meet for church at Capitol Hill Presbyterian on Capitol Hill from 4:00 - 6:00 pm on Sundays.
