Meet Robert Nugent

Robert NugentRobert Nugent, Writer/Arranger/Orchestrator

We at Grace Music are excited to introduce you to Robert Nugent. He is the creative mind behind nearly all our music. Like a great film score, Robert’s work is artistically satisfying and highly inspiring. He brings his unique style to our moving new hymn and Christmas carol arrangements, powerful yet reverent orchestral pieces, and our own Signature Series of original songs and anthems!

Throughout his life Robert knew he wanted to be involved in writing and arranging music for the local church. He attended the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, majoring in composition. While earning his Master’s degree Robert also worked as a theory teaching assistant. Just as Robert finished his Master’s, the fulltime position of Minister of Music and Worship at Faith Evangelical Free Church in Milford, Ohio became available and seemed to be a direct answer to prayer. In this position he was responsible for the entire area of worship through creative media including music, drama, dance, and visual media.

In 1988 Robert met Randy Kettering, Director of Worship Arts and Media at Grace Polaris Church of Columbus, Ohio. As their friendship grew and Robert continued to develop as a writer and arranger, Randy invited Robert to begin arranging for Grace Polaris Church on a parttime basis.

In 2003 Robert accepted Randy’s invitation to become the fulltime staff arranger for the church and the newly formed Grace Media Group. Robert also participates as a singer, songwriter, pianist, worship leader, and as part of the production team on various recording projects. We’re extremely blessed to have Robert’s music to blend into our worship services, concerts, and pageants. We’re also grateful that God is allowing us to share his music with you!

We hope you enjoy the incredible gift God has given Robert as much as we do!
