In 1912, the MCA decided to stop production of the popular Gospel Art Calendar and establish a second community at Bullard, Texas. Never a financial success, the Bullard community would collapse in 1919. World War I, the influenza epidemic and chronic debt hindered the movement. In 1918, Duke Farson and his sons left the MCA organizing the rival Immanuel Church in Chicago. Remarkable revivals continued especially in the winter of 1919–1920 in Boscobel, Wisconsin. A Shortly before Harvey’s death in 1926, W. S. Hitchcock became president. Under Hitchcock leadership debt reduction replaced evangelism as the moment’s central emphasis. As the MCA retreated in North America dynamic young leaders strengthened and established missions in India, South Africa and Europe.
