About This Ministry

Overview

“Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.” – 1 Timothy 2:8

At TORCC New York, we are real men seeking to have deeper relationship with Jesus and live a God-first life. Strengthen Him is about encouraging brothers to come together and grow in faith and fellowship. We’re here to help you discover your strengths as a husband, son, brother, father, businessman, or leader. We recognize that every man has an innate desire to be part of something bigger than himself, develop bonds with like minded brothers, and grow in their relationship with Jesus. Strengthen Him is a time when we come together as men and talk real talk about real issues to obtain real answers. We stir one another to live God's best for each individual man, and spend time growing together in spirit. These times are full of discussions, events, gatherings, and special outings. We want to empower you to impact your workplace, communities—and most importantly—your families for the kingdom of God.

Whether you’re a college student, a new husband, a single parent, or enjoying the prime of your life, there’s a place for you.

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!

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
  • Every Wind Of Doctrine
  • The Beginning of The End
  • The Theology Of Prophecy
