He began holding services with a small group in his own home. The group briefly joined with the David Martin Mennonites from 1917-1920. At its height, the group was comprised of around 10 families. Most returned to the Old Order, though Daniel Brubacher continued to hold services with his wife and daughters until his death in 1952.
