He was the first trained minister in the Ontario Amish Mennonite Conference. He was very involved in historical projects by this time, including his book,The Amish of Canada that was published in 1972 and the Amish sesquicentennial in Canada that was celebrated the same year.

The company expanded over time, but encountered financial difficulties in its later years.
