Pastor Robyn Kassas, Pastor Tony Kassas, Pastor Nathan Kassas
Times of Refreshing Christian Center (TORCC) is a dynamic, on fire for God ministry in New York City and Sydney Australia. They operate in the five fold ministries with a desire to see people set free from sin, living in Christ, developing their ministries that God has called them to, and growing deep in His living Word. Their ministries are not service, feel-good, we are the world, new age, microwave style ministries. They are about truth, accountability, pushing back the evil darkness in this world, and living what they preach. TORCC invited JKK to come and speak at their annual conference of Satanic Ritual Abuse in October 2022. They provided a platform for JKK to clearly speak about Human Sex Trafficking, its impact on the community and on individuals, and the truth that this ravenous dog of Human Sex Trafficking is consuming our children. TORCC’s ministry, theology, and philosophy also align with JKK’s in that true, deep healing comes only through a relationship with Jesus Christ. TORCC New York and Sydney Australia also partnered with JKK financially. They provided the remaining funds needed for JKK to purchase the property where we will build a long-term therapeutic home for female teen victims of Human Sex Trafficking. TORCC gave $35,000 for this ministry. Many of the givers are, in fact, survivors of Human Sex Trafficking. Further funding has been pledged by TORCC New York and Sydney Australia. They remain in prayer and contact to support this ministry. TORCC is valued by JKK and is doing Kingdom work. Praise God for this connection.
