More than 90 years ago, representatives from 62 congregations gathered in downtown Seattle to form an organization that eventually became known as the Church Council of Greater Seattle. Over the years the Council has embraced all major Christian denominations and many interfaith partners.

It has also developed a distinctly activist character in keeping with the Pacific Northwest's pioneering spirit and the Christian call for compassion.

Today, the Church Council represents more than 340 churches and 15 denominations as well as thousands of individuals united by the belief that we can work together to promote justice and increase compassion in our community.
