The building was dedicated as the home of Central Christian Church in 1948. At the time, Central Christian was one of the largest churches in town.

Multiple Groups to Work with Wichita Homeless Population

Robert Mitelhaus, owner of the former Central Christian Church building, signed leases for multiple organizations to use the space after realizing the church might be best utilized by certain groups and outreach ministries, The Wichita Eagle reported .

The groups include JayDoc Community Clinic, Church on the Street, The Source Wichita, and Jason Febres’ Rent the Chef business.  Ken Schmanke, executive director on JayDoc’s board, said volunteering at the clinic allows him to evolve as a physician.
