Pastor Andrew-Craig Nugent is currently serving as the Associate Youth and Young-Adult Director of the Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. For the previous 11 years he served in several local churches as associate pastor, district pastor, and Youth and Young Adult Pastor. He is married to the former Melissa Johnson, who owns and operates a mental health therapy private practice. Both Pastor and Sis. Nugent are graduates of Andrews University.

Pastor Joe was born in the little town of Crasna (Romania). Ever since he was a child, he has been fascinated by the unique connection between pastors and their special book, the Bible. When at the age of 7 he received his first little Bible from a brave pastor who was able to procure it for him in spite of the interdictions of the communist regime, he felt special and decided one day he would become a pastor.
After serving as a Pastor for 8 years in Romania, in 2013 he immigrated to the USA. He currently serves as Lead Pastor of Plantation Seventh-day Adventist Church. Along with his wonderful wife Anda and their gorgeous daughter Alessandra, he enjoys proclaiming God’s grace and ministering to his fellows.
By God's grace, in February 2020 he completed my doctoral program obtaining a Doctor of Ministry degree in Preaching/Homiletics from Andrews University. His hobbies are languages, music, and poetry.
