After founding his church, Ben Klassen sought to promote his religion among other activists in the extreme right. This chapter details these efforts. Despite his disdain for what he saw as an over-intellectualizing of the predicament of the white race in contemporary society, he nevertheless held some of the movement intellectuals in high esteem, most notably, William Gayley Simpson. To establish a more solid institutional basis for his religion, Klassen ordered the construction of a church in North Carolina. By the early 1980s, Klassen decided to wind down his active management in real estate to devote all of his energy to Creativity. After several years of disseminating Nature's Eternal Religion and corresponding with rightists around the country, Klassen decided that his religious movement needed a headquarters. To that end, in 1982, he established the first Creator church in North Carolina.
