Meet Our Leaders

Dr Robyn Kassas

Head Teacher

Robyn is the founder of Times of Refreshing Christian Center Sydney, Australia (TORCC).

Beginning as a small house church in the outer western suburbs of Sydney back in 1982, Robyn alongside her first husband(now deceased) set the foundations of 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 (NLG, NYG ) and the School of Apostles and Prophets (SOAP), also in New York City. Robyn has been in ministry for over 30 years, and has ministered extensively in Singapore, Malaysia, Kenya, The Philippines, Indonesia, India, Israel, United Kingdom, New Zealand and the United States.

Robyn’s passion is 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 God on the earth. Robyn is determined to bring the Church out of being an irrelevant form of organized religion, to a body of people connected to their local cultures and who can contribute excellence in every field of endeavor.

She believes that the Church will be a force to be reckoned with, and filled with the power of God in trying times! Robyn’s grasp of the prophetic ministry and its function in the local church and how it needs to impact the various societal platforms is groundbreaking.  From Pastors to politicians, sporting heroes to musicians and actors, all have experienced the positive effects of Robyn’s prophetic ministry and wisdom.  Robyn is determined to restore the ministry of the prophets to the church with the highest level of integrity! 

She is widely recognized for her challenging messages and inspired words from the Spirit of God.  Her ministry gifts include the prophetic and teaching, leadership and vision-casting. However, her abilities stretch much further and include the performing arts and community services. 

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. Mark Virkler and is also a member of Ministers Fellowship International (MFI) since 2001.  

She has written numerous courses on the prophetic, and is the contributing editor and lead writer of Canaan Land Prophetic Journal. She is a qualified instructor of the Communion With God Ministries whose courses include: Communion with God, Counseled by God, and Spirit-Born Creativity.

Robyn lives in New York City where she the Head Lecturer of the “School of Apostles and Prophets” (S.O.A.P.) Robyn has been married to Tony Kassas for 26 years and they have five adult children. 

 


We are here not to play the church, but to be the church!

Ps. Tony Kassas

Minister / Apostle

Tony was saved in the early eighties through TORCC, and is a long-standing member. Six years later he joined the leadership team just before his marriage to Robyn in 1989. Tony’s teaching ministry spans the Australian, South East Asian and North American continents, but he has also ministered in England, Israel and Kenya.  

He is a proven prophetic minister and teacher ministering the word of the Lord in prophecy to thousands of people over 25 years of ministry.  Tony is able to help believers grasp the “Big Picture” regarding the Church in the last days.  His insight into the ‘panoramic’ and ‘macroscopic’ events that are about to take place in the world and in the Church do much to prevent believers from being unprepared for the challenges and victories that will lead to the Second coming of Jesus!  

Tony wants everyone to experience what he calls ‘New Testament Church Dynamics’!  This is the power, insight, and boldness that filled the early Church in the Book of Acts.

It is the dynamic that the apostles took to every corner of their society.  Tony is committed to restoring the same dynamic in our churches today.  His ministry gifts include teaching, prophecy and governance.

Tony established the ‘Community Assistance Team’ (CAT) in 2002 , which acts as a service to the underprivileged in Parramatta’s City Center.  He also oversees the TORCC New York, ‘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.  

Tony also established “Visioncorp” a group of men and women with business interests who meet regularly to discuss how better to serve and inspire budding entrepreneurs in their endeavor to be excellent in the marketplace.  He believes that by establishing credibility in the marketplace, Christians create a platform for the Gospel as they demonstrate the blessings that accompany righteousness in business ethics.


Our Senior Team




Core Team


Our church is grown and nurtured through the contribution of so many people that selfishly lay down their lives and give of their time to see the Heaven come to Earth and the Kingdom expanded in all over the World. While everyone at TORCC NY is a capable minister and contributes to our vision; these key people are a vital part of our ministry and it’s reach.
