About This Ministry

Overview

In the craziness of life, many of us feel that we are not heard, that our needs are not important and our hurts don’t matter. The Apostle Peter tells us to cast our cares upon God because he cares for us…He is the God who cares! True strength is the ability to deal with hurt and pain, not to feel like you need to ignore it. We understand the importance of availability.

Here at TORCC New York our Senior Ministers and pastoral counselors will put time aside to hear you out and talk with you on a heart-to-heart level.Our Pastoral are seasoned counsellors well-equipped with great understanding and patience, so you will never feel judged or unimportant. They offer individual, marriage, and family counseling to help people and families with their personal and spiritual growth.

WHAT IS FREEDOM MINISTRY?

It is from the understanding stated above, that our Freedom ministry is a unique inner deliverance ministry aimed to get to the root of –point of entry– of what may be hindering you from entering into a deeper relationship with Jesus. During this time our ministry team will sit down with you in a private setting and guide you through the process of freedom and wholeness. This is not a counseling session-if counseling is needed then other ministry alternatives can be arranged. Instead, this a time of delayering the soul from demonic oppression and filling you back up with the experiential reality of who Jesus is, so that you can pursue and fulfill your complete calling and destiny as a child of God!

TORCC began as a small house church in the outer western suburbs of Sydney back in 1982. Dr. Robyn, alongside her first husband Pastor Ken Mackie (now deceased) set the foundations for what now has grown into an 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(SYD), New York Generation(NYC), and the School of Apostles and Prophets (SOAP), also in New York City.

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 for 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, to 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 and 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 positive effects of Robyn’s prophetic ministry and wisdom.  Robyn is also committed to restoring the ministry of the prophet to the church with the highest level of integrity and accountability!  

She is widely recognized for her challenging messages and inspired words from the Spirit of God.  Her ministry gifts include the prophetic, 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 (CIAN) since 1995, and has achieved a Doctor of Divinity from the Christian International Seminary (CIS).  Robyn has also received a Doctor of Ministry through the Christian Leadership Seminary(CLS), headed by Rev.

Tony Kassas has been a member of Times of Refreshing Christian Centre Sydney ever since he was saved in the ministry in the early 1980s.  Six years later, he joined their leadership team. He married Robyn in 1989. Although Tony’s teaching ministry generally 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, preaching and prophesying to thousands of people over his 30 years of ministry. Among his spiritual gifts are teaching, prophecy and governance. His teaching is designed to help believers grasp the ‘big picture’ regarding the Church in the last days.  His 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’ or the power, insight, and boldness that filled the early Church in the Book of Acts.

This is the dynamic that the apostles took to every corner of the world turning it upside down. Tony is actively and prayerfully committed to restoring the same dynamic in our churches today.  


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 lives in New York City with his wife Robyn, son and daughter-in-law and his three youngest grandchildren.
