Pastor Prince of Joseph Prince Ministries initially served as an elder and associate pastor.
However, his appointment as senior pastor marked a turning point in the history of the church, which started experiencing growth at an accelerated rate never before seen in its history.
Prince is now the pastor of New Creation Church, which is a mega church in Singapore. Since its founding in 1984 it has grown to a congregation of over 15,000 members in 2007.
All weekly messages preached by its pastors or guest speakers are recorded and released on audio CDs, while selected messages are released on DVDs. The church also periodically releases "praise and worship" albums produced by its music ministry. The church holds services in English, Mandarin, Hokkien and Korean.
The church was founded in 1984, and from an initial attendance of 25, grew to about 150 members by 1990. In June 1990, Joseph Prince, a founding member and pioneer leader of the church, was appointed as the senior pastor. By 1997, its congregation numbered about 3,000. Currently, over 15,000!
New Creation Church, along with a few other independent churches in Singapore such as Faith Community Baptist Church, Lighthouse Evangelism (Singapore) and City Harvest Church, have congregations which have been growing exponentially. As of 2008, the church has 14 pastors.
In 2003, the church was noted for installing thermal scanners
to help inhibit the spread of SARS. The scanners would alert the helpers of the church if the body temperature of anyone seemed abnormally high.
According to the church's website, it has been involved in missions throughout the Asian region and has sent pastors and leaders to countries such as China, Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia.
The church's services are also broadcast weekly in Uganda and the United States (via the Daystar Television Network), and twice a week on the Australian Christian Channel.
Every year, Joseph Prince Ministries organizes trips to Israel through their own tour agency.
