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!

Jonathan Paredes
Creative Pastor | Visual & Media Director

Jonathan is the Creative Pastor of TORCC. He and his beautiful wife Ashley are deacons in training and are involved in leading each part of the creative and production teams. 

Jonathan is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York, he graduated with a BA in Illustration. His design skills and artistic vision gives him an edge when he ministers to the Body of Christ.  While other prophetic ministers primarily speak the word of the Lord – Jon prophesies in pen, pencil, brush and photography.  He is also a very capable prophetic minister through the spoken word. He is the founder and director of “Second Breath Art” where he and other trained artists use their God-given talents to illustrate the prophetic word of God. He has been in demand by churches and other ministries to teach his method of prophetic illustration and using it to engage the voice of God. 

Jon, or “JP” as we love to call him, joined the team at TORCC back in 2014 and has had one of the most remarkable transformations we’ve seen since our founding in 2010. Through the love of God and beautiful shepherding of our Senior Leadership, Jonathan was able to live behind an alternate lifestyle and embrace his true identity in Christ Jesus. He has seen that truth doesn’t change based on experience, and is thankful for the Holy Spirit revealing Himself the way that He did. Now Jonathan is ready to share his powerful testimony with others that are stuck and caught in cycles different lifestyles. He is excited to share there is hope and that hope is...JESUS!

Jonathan also recently married his amazing wife Ashley Brandford in May 2019, and together they are being prepared for more pastoral and leadership responsibilities. 

Jonathan is the main overseer of the creative, media, and production arms of TORCC. He directs all illustrations, visual concepts, and graphic design. In addition, he works closely with Ps. Nathan Kassas in the production of TORCC TV, and is in charge of all Service Broadcasts, Live Tapings, Short Films, Documentaries, etc. 

He also is the chief designer on all graphic media produced by our team which includes: logos, branding, design, concept, graphics, visual presentation. Jonathan works closely with Dr Robyn Kassas on Canaan Land Prophetic Journal and the Annual Season Casting Prophetic Blueprint to uniquely but clearly communicate what God is saying. He helps to shape the face and the look of our ministries to the world. Basically if anything requires film, media, graphics, visual concept, or art...Jonathan is there. It’s for this reason that we like to call him our “Visual Worship Leader”. 

Jonathan works with his team to bring the message through creative and visual expression with clarity and power. 

Jonathan has also completed the SOAP leadership modules as follows:

  • Foundations in the Prophetic
  • Operating in the Prophetic
  • Advancing In the Prophetic
  • Communion With God
  • Counseled By God
