Reverend Adolphus Nussman emigrated to the United States in 1773 and became a valiant religious and educational leader in his lifetime. Nussman was the first Lutheran minister to reach North Carolina and held pastorates in Rowan and Cabarrus Counties, as well as in Mecklenburg. In 1786, Nussman was appointed as one of the Commissioners for erecting an Academy in Salisbury.
St. John's Church, a Lutheran church in German Buffalo Creek, Mecklenburg County, wrote its constitution shortly following the Revolutionary War. Pastor Nussmann is the main author of the document which calls for religious ministrations and education open to all. The constitution in its entirety is reprinted here with the translation from original German text to English by Professor A.G. Voigt of Columbia, South Carolina.
