The office was located at Montezuma, Kansas. The organization began to operate on 1 October 1943, and was adopted by the General Conference in November 1946. It functioned in 1957 under the direction of an Executive Board, a Board of Directors, and 41 local committees representing 41 districts in the United States and Canada. Mortgage certificates were recognized by loan companies. In April 1957 the assessed valuation was over $14,000,000, with 1,765 members.
