MSAADA first became involved in Nigeria in the early 1980s when the Lutheran World Federation requested our consulting assistance on location in Nigeria for some building projects for the Lutheran Church of Nigeria located in the southeastern part of the country. This later led to a request by a Danish missionary builder in the Lutheran Church of Christ in Nigeria (LCCN) that we complete design and construction documents for some new churches in Numan, Wukari, and Maiduguri, plus for a Tekan Guest House in Jos. The same missionary builder then supervised the construction of these projects.
The most memorable of the various church projects for LCCN is the Church in Maiduguri, where foundations had already been constructed based on a previous design before MSAADA became involved with the project. But the client now desired a design that was more “churchy” than the original design that was used to lay out the foundations. This at first seemed quite a challenge, as the original floor layout was rather unusual. Fortunately, we were able to turn that into a quite appropriate and relevant design for that church, built at a university campus and which is now used by Roman Catholic, Lutheran, and Anglican student congregations.
