Robert's Writing

Robert Noland spent ten years as a touring musician, songwriter, and producer in Christian music. After leaving the road, he became the Director of Operations of an international, interdenominational ministry producing Christian resources, managing all aspects of the organization for twenty years. During that season, he and his family planted three churches with Robert being the lay-pastor of the third for nine years.

In 1991 he began writing Christian resources and has since authored one hundred- plus devotionals, study guides, journals, and books spanning across children, youth, and adult audiences.

Robert and his family relocated from Texas to Nashville in 2011 to launch his own ministry—517 Resources, Inc. In 2014, he became a full-time freelance author and writer. Since that time, Robert has collaborated with authors such as Mark Miller (Sawyer Brown), Bart Millard (MercyMe), Barry Zito (MLB pitcher), Michael W. Smith, and Craig Groeschel, as well as penned multiple projects in coordination with faith films such as I Can Only Imagine, An Interview With God, and I Still Believe.

In 2018, Robert partnered with iDisciple Publishing where he has released the best-selling men’s devotionals The Sword & Shield and Legacy of Leaders, as well as Believe, Become, Be: Becoming the Man God Believes You Can Be.

517 Resources is responsible for a ministry center in Buchanan, Liberia that feeds four hundred children per day, while also offering medical care. There is also a literacy program teaching pre-school age children. His U.S. initiative provides Robert’s authored books free of charge to prison inmates and chaplains across the country, as well as addiction recovery programs. Those alliances are with Bestwa, Prisoners for Christ Outreach, and Ground 40.

After forty-plus years in ministry, Robert’s calling has always been to present the Gospel through all forms of artistic media. He lives outside Franklin, Tennessee with his wife of 35- plus years and has two adult sons, both creatives. Visit Robert’s Amazon Author page.

What others are saying about Robert's writing

“Robert Noland is a talented writer, editor, and collaborator. Not only will you work with someone who knows how to weave a compelling story, you will also be working with an editor who knows how to hit a deadline. I am happy to recommend Robert Noland to any professional looking to take their manuscript to the next level.”

Joel KneedlerAssociate Publisher, W/Emanate (Harper-Collins Christian Publishing Group)

“There's one word that describes working with Robert: effortless. Every time I think about Robert, I have nothing but happy and grateful thoughts. I've had the privilege to work with him on three devotional projects for the movies Do You Believe?, Woodlawn, and God’s Not Dead 2. My desire for all the projects I manage is that the heart of the message shines for maximum impact. Robert captures that heart with excellence and sincerity. His writing inspires, challenges, entertains, and motivates. He is on-time, hard working, and communicates wonderfully every step of the way. I have no reservations in my highest recommendation of Robert and his writing. You (and all who read what he writes or edits) will be blessed.”

David SlukaEditorial Director, BroadStreet Publishing Group

“To the man whose name appears on the cover of my book with me—Robert Noland. God collided our stories twenty years ago, and we became friends. We are just now discovering what God is up to with us. Your life embodies the words of this book. I couldn’t have finished this project on time without you.”

Randy Frazeeauthor of Think, Act, Believe Like Jesus

"Robert Noland, our buddy and thought organizer. You have ninja skills—some call those talents—you use as tools, not toys. Thanks for your faithfulness to this project and for your incredibly high professional and personal standards. Your ministry to men and your help with this book has greatly impacted us."

David & Jason Benhamauthors of Living Among Lions

"Robert Noland, what a gift you are to me! I knew I needed help telling this story and the way you were able to capture my heart and my spirit after our first couple of meetings is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you for helping me find my voice in this book."

Don Moenauthor of God Will Make a Way

"Working with Robert Noland was an unanticipated dream come true. When it came time to collaborate with someone on the novelization for the film “An Interview with God,” I was really at a loss. I had hoped to find someone who would appreciate the complex narrative and dense theology the film presents. But I also needed a novelist to translate a movie that was very ‘filmic' into something that would both work in print, and also cater to a very different audience. Not only did I find this with Robert but his novelization improves and clarifies the film in many significant ways. I can’t imagine a better collaboration."
