ABOUT THIS MINISTRYOverview

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.



A Different Approach?


This ministry is unique in it’s approach and application to counseling believers in their walk with the Lord. While communication techniques used in traditional counseling and discipleship are applied in these sessions, we believe that Jesus Christ is the Wonderful Counselor for all and therefore when He speaks life, healing, and direction are given. Because only He knows the heart, our ministers use their prophetic  and spiritual gifting to hear God for certain entry points and points of activation that may be causing wounds in places where we feel broken.

The Holy Spirit is the one who changes and woos us unto Jesus so that we can apply the power of the cross thus defeating the enemy in the battle of the mind, will, and emotions. Our past can only be rewritten as we embrace the truth — Jesus — and put off old negative thinking and mindsets. We heavily depend upon the Holy Spirit to guide and lead each session so that permanent change is activated and the person is transformed from the inside out.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      If you have any questions or would like to know more information then we encourage you to contact us and one of our team members will be in touch.


      Do I have to be a Christian?

      All counseling will be founded on biblical principles and the values of Christian beliefs with the leading of the Holy Spirit. Because of this, we do prefer that the person/persons requesting counsel have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and be active in walking out their spiritual and personal growth.

      Exceptions can be made only after speaking with our team and getting their direction. 


      Is Marriage Counseling Available?

      Yes, our team is available and equipped in the areas of pre-marital and marriage counseling.


      Do I have to be a member of the Church?

      Again, as every house has a unique vision and different methods in which they conduct ministry, we do prefer that the person receiving counsel and guidance from our team be an active member and involved in what God is doing in our church. However, if members of other churches are seeking guidance and care in this area, then the following protocol is implemented:

      • 1. Speak with their leadership.

      We encourage members of other churches to first speak with their leadership and reach out to their covering for help and ministry. Our aim is not to institute or cause division between a person and their covering and we respect the office of every shepherd and the responsibility of caring for the sheep entrusted to them.

      • 2. Exhaust all options at current ministry. 

      We encourage you to reach out to your church to see if they have anyways that you are unaware of that can help you and be beneficial in ministering to you. If you still feel that the care you are seeking is not being offered then please get in touch with us.
