Dr Robyn Kassas
Senior Minister / Overseeing Prophet -

Senior Minister / Overseeing Prophet -DDiv; DMin

Dr Robyn Kassas is the founder and senior minister of Times of Refreshing Christian Center (TORCC) in both Australia and the United States.

Dr Robyn, alongside her first husband Pastor Ken Mackie (now deceased and with the Lord) set the foundations for what has grown into a thriving international ministry. TORCC is comprised of two worship centers (one in Parramatta, Australia and the other in Manhattan, New York), two performing arts schools Next Level Generation (in Sydney), New York Generation (NYC), and the School of Apostles and Prophets (SOAP) also in New York City. 

Robyn has been in ministry for over 35 years, and has ministered extensively in Singapore, Malaysia, Kenya, the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Israel, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Solomon Islands, and the United States.

Dr Robyn’s passion is for equipping believers to be excellent in their vocation and calling in life. She believes that the Church will become the greatest source for good, and clearest conduit of the very presence of God through the Holy Spirit on the earth before the return of Jesus. Robyn is determined to bring the Church out of irrelevance and organized religion and into a body of people connected to their culture and who can contribute excellence in every field of society.

As a prophet, Robyn’s grasp of the prophetic ministry and its function in the local church is groundbreaking.  She demonstrates how the prophetic ministry needs to impact the various societal platforms in our culture. From pastors to politicians, princes and the poor, sporting heroes to musicians and actors, all have experienced the effects of Robyn’s prophetic ministry and wisdom. Robyn is committed to restoring the ministry of the prophet to the church with the highest level of integrity and accountability. This is so important to Robyn that she completed her Master of Christian Arts majoring in the prophetic ministry and studies from Christian Leadership University. 

She is widely recognized for her challenging messages and inspired words straight from the Spirit of God. Her ministry gifts include the prophecy, teaching, leadership and vision-casting. However, her abilities stretch much further, and include the performing arts and community services as well.

Robyn has been an ordained minister of Christian International Apostolic Network since 1995, and has achieved a Doctorate of Divinity from the Christian International Seminary. Robyn has also received a Doctorate of Ministry through the Christian Leadership University, headed by Rev. Mark Virkler.

She is respected by church leaders around and ministers around the world as an ordained and established prophet of over 30 years experience. 

She has written numerous courses on the prophetic, and is the contributing editor and lead writer of Canaan Land Prophetic Journal - a prophetic publication she started 30 years ago which has been published all over the world. 

Robyn is the president of the School Of Apostles and Prophets located in New York City. She oversees the equipping of each student in the fivefold ministries and prophetic and apostolic offices. This now includes the newly launched SOAP Online Campus which is effective in reaching students in every country. 

She has founded the widely successful “Portals Podcast”. This podcast is full of prophetic conversation and revelation and has regular listeners in over 25 countries. 

Her latest venture is the launching and pioneering of TORCC TV. This on-demand streaming service is full of resources that will equip, inspire, and mature each believer's relationship with Jesus to the deepest level. She also recently launched the highly successful original show “Open Eyes”. It is an investigative show that looks into the headlines that the mainstream media is not revealing. This has become a much needed resource for the Church because of the times we are living in. 

Whatever Robyn sets her hand to, fruit comes from and we see the power, presence, and love of God manifest -- lives are transformed, people are changed, and leaders are raised. She loves living in New York City, the heart of the world, and being part of turning the city from a graveyard to a garden for the Kingdom of God. 

Robyn lives in New York with her husband. She has been happily married to her husband Tony for 31 years and has five adult children, two foster children, and 13 grandchildren. 


Dr. Tony Kassas
Executive Pastor | Overseeing Apostle

(Th.D.)

Tony Kassas has been a member of Times of Refreshing Christian Centre Sydney ever since he was saved through its ministry in the early 1980’s. Six years later, he joined the leadership team. He married Robyn in 1989. Although Tony’s ongoing teaching ministry spans the Australian, South East Asian, and North American continents, he has also ministered in England, Israel, and Kenya.  

Tony Kassas is an ordained and proven prophetic minister and teacher. He has preached and prophesied to thousands of people over 30 years of ministry. His spiritual gifts include teaching, prophecy and governance. His teaching gift aims to help believers grasp the ‘big picture’ regarding the Church in the last days. He has a unique ability to give believers the ‘panoramic’ and ‘macroscopic’ view of events that are about to take place in the world and in the Church. His goal is to prepare the Church to overcome the challenges and experience the victories that will lead to the Second Coming of Jesus!  

His heart’s desire is for everyone to experience what he calls ‘New Testament Church Dynamic’ which is signified by the power, insight, and boldness that filled the early Church in the Book of Acts. As an apostolic father, he faithfully mentors the next generation of leaders and ministers into this dynamic. 

In Sydney, Tony established the Community Assistance Team (CAT) back in 2002, which serves food with a friendly smile to the underprivileged in Parramatta’s City Center.  In New York City, he oversees TORCC NY’s Humanitarian Emergency Relief Team (HERT), which collaborates with other churches and agencies as a first response relief group in the aftermath of natural disasters, supplying basic necessities to victims and their families such as in the wake of Hurricane Sandy in 2012. 

Tony also established Visioncorp where Christian men and women with business interests meet regularly to discuss how to better serve and inspire budding entrepreneurs to be excellent in the marketplace. He believes establishing credibility in the marketplace creates a platform for Christians to share the Gospel with businessmen and women as they demonstrate the blessings that accompany righteousness in business ethics. 

He is the academic dean of the School Of Apostles and Prophets and senior lecturer of the Prophetic/Apostolic Stream. Tony is instrumental in providing a Biblical and sound theological framework and accountability for TORCC’s ministry. 

He received his Doctorate of Theology from Christian Leadership University with further studies completed through Ministers Fellowship International, Vision International University, and Christian International Seminary. 

Tony hosts TORCC TV’s original show “Theology Talks” where he discusses doctrine, theology, and Biblical studies. 

He is writing a commentary of the book of Genesis called The Genesis Project. When complete, it will be a prophetic exposition of the book of beginnings and its powerful theological, scientific, and prophetic meaning. 

Tony lives in New York with his wife and son. He has been happily married to his wife Robyn for 31 years and has five adult children and 13 grandchildren.
