About This Ministry

Overview

One of the most important foundations that we stand by at TORCC NY is that, “Everyone is a member”. This means that you have a place and a position — more than just warming a seat.Our passion is to see everyone fulfill their destiny and calling. Because of this, we want to invite you to join us for a special time to connect and get plugged into the life of what God is doing throughout our church. Our church consists of people from all different walks of life that call our ministry home and we are excited to welcome those that feel a special calling by the Holy Spirit to become apart of our family.
So if you are interested in becoming apart of the mandate to which God has given us specifically, come along and hear Ps. Tony and key leadership share on our vision and what it means to be a contributing member within the family of our church.
Here you can learn the model of our specific church culture, what makes us unique, and how you can get plugged into the heart and various arms of our ministry. Also, we will be welcoming and honoring our new members with a special presentation to honor their commitment.

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!

Ps. Tony Kassas
Executive Pastor | Overseeing Apostle

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.

Tim Byrnes
Asst. Pastor | Men's Pastor

Tim has been apart of TORCC New York since it's conception and founding. He is a vital member and contributor to our mandate and culture. Tim Byrnes’ ministry gifts are pastor, teacher and leadership. Tim is also an avid historian with a particular aptitude for Early Church History.  He is also a capable apologist for all the essential foundational Christian doctrines that seem to have been tainted or ignored in most recent times in many Christian circles.  His passion for the early church writers and the revivalists of the 19th Century has influenced him in such a way that Tim has in many ways become a ‘Revivalist Advocate’.

Tim’s heart is as large as his theology.  A true shepherd, he is always ready to Guide and guard the Lord’s people in practical ways as well.  He is always looking for ways to assist men in the calling and responsibilities as priests to their homes.  For this reason Tim heads up ‘Strengthen Him’ - a ministry specifically for men, dealing with ‘manly’ issues.

Tim is a graduate of NYU with a Masters in Teaching in Music. He graduated with distinctions in the following courses of study in the School Of Apostles and Prophets (SOAP) New York:

  • The Great Doctrines of the Bible
