About the Founders
Dennis and Nolene Prince are the founders of Resource Christian Music, responsible for producing praise and worship resources in Australia since 1981. They also co-founded the Christian Resource Centre (now known as Kingston City Church) in Heatherton, Melbourne where they both attend. As pastors in the church, they assist the present Senior Pastor Danny Parker. Among its many activities the church has a School of several hundred students and a significant ministry of providing food and other resources to needy people.
Dennis became a Christian during the final year of a Civil Engineering degree at Melbourne University; Nolene when she was 15 at a Billy Graham Crusade. Prior to launching Kingston City Church in 1976 Dennis was a lecturer in Civil Engineering at the Gordon Institute of Technology in Geelong, Victoria, now Deakin University.
Nolene completed a Music Degree at Melbourne University, majoring in singing. Her early life centered on singing and she studied further in England. She has sung as a soloist on ABC Radio and with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
They both attended Crusade Bible College (now Tabor Bible College) in Adelaide in 1972 and 1973 under Leo Harris and Dr. Barry Chant.
After publishing over 1000 songs over several decades, Dennis developed a passion to see sound theology in song lyrics and released a book on the subject: “Worship is a Bowl of Noodles, or What Would Jesus Sing?”
Nolene has written many songs, one of which, “Holy is the Lord of Hosts”, has been sung around the world and been translated into many languages. She has conducted choirs for recordings and other events and is a passionate worship leader.
They worked together on the book “Nine Days in Heaven”, putting the difficult old-fashioned English of the original book (“Scenes Beyond the Grave”) into modern language. It now sells extremely well in Australia and in the United States.
In 2012 Dennis published a one-off newspaper “The Regal Standard”. Upon hearing that the second Global Atheist Convention was to be held in Melbourne, God laid on his heart a means of countering this by placing this paper into the hands of ordinary Christians as a tool to answer atheist claims. The newspaper contains testimonies by eminent scientists (formerly atheist), miracle stories and other answers to common questions. More than 80,000 copies were sold, so with that endorsement Dennis expanded the contents with further miracle stories of atheist conversions and more, and published this as a book "I Was Wrong: Why the World’s Most Notorious Atheist Called It Quits and Other Trouble for the New Atheism".
Married for 46 years Dennis and Nolene have three married children and eleven grandchildren.
