The church that Dennis Rader attended.

At the time of his arrest in February of 2005, serial killer Dennis Rader was the president of the Christ Lutheran Church in Wichita.

Rader started attending the church during the mid-1970s. Over time, he became a trusted member who regularly held positions on the congregation council.

His fellow churchgoers were shocked and horrified when they learned that the "kind" and "helpful" man they knew was one of America's most notorious serial killers.

Days after the news broke, Pastor Michael Clark told his congregation that they were moving into a phase of life that they did not understand. "Anger, sorrow, betrayal, hurt, sadness. It will be there," he said.

To make matters even worse, evidence soon emerged that Rader had used the church during one of his crimes.

Following the murder of Marine Hedge in 1985, BTK transported her body to the Christ Lutheran Church. There, during the early hours of the night, he proceeded to take photographs of her in various bondage positions.
