On Easter 2010, the church on 19th and Crocker re-opened for services in this Upper Room. A small congregation called Life Church International that had been meeting in Ankeny, Iowa moved into the historic church while the restoration process continued. Led by Pastors Kenney and Neja Linhart the congregation soon changed its name to simply The Kathedral.

The congregation was comprised of hearty people with a pioneering spirit. During the restoration, the congregation often experienced water when it rained, cold in the winter, heat in the summer and falling debris. However, their hunger for the Word and commitment to the vision of seeing the building restored ushered them forward.
