Dr. Robyn Kassas is the founder of Times of Refreshing Christian Center(TORCC) in both Australia and the United States.
TORCC began as a small house church in the outer western suburbs of Sydney back in 1982. Dr. Robyn, alongside her first husband Pastor Ken Mackie (now deceased) set the foundations for 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 (Next Level Generation(SYD), New York Generation(NYC), 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.
Dr. Robyn’s passion is for 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 the very presence of God through the Holy Spirit on the earth before the return of Jesus. Robyn is determined to bring the Church out of irrelevance and organized religion, to a body of people connected to their culture and who can contribute excellence in every ﬁeld of society.
As a prophet, 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
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 including: Communion with God, Counseled by God, and Spirit-Born Creativity.
Robyn lives in New York City where she is the dean and teacher of Biblical Studies of the School of Apostles and Prophets (S.O.A.P.), and director of the performing arts school New York Generation. Robyn has been married to Tony Kassas for 30 years and has ﬁve adult children.
Tony Kassas was saved in the early 1980s through the ministry of Times of Refreshing Christian Centre Sydney (TORCC-Sydney), and has been a member ever since. Six years later, he joined their leadership team, just prior to marrying 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 a proven prophetic minister and teacher, teaching, preaching, and prophesying to thousands of people over his 30 years of ministry. His teaching helps believers grasp the ‘big picture’ regarding the Church in the last days. His ability to give believers the ‘panoramic’ and ‘macroscopic’ view of events that are about to take place in the world and in the Church prepares them to overcome the challenges and victories that will lead to the Second Coming of Jesus!
Pastor 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.
This is the dynamic that the apostles took to every corner of the world. 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 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.
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.
