Pastoral Staff



Reverend Dr. J. Thomas Kort serves as Doylestown Presbyterian Church’s Transitional Pastor starting September 1, 2023. Tom begam his ministry at DPC in September, 2023 and comes with over 42 years of pastoral experience at various churches located in Western PA, West Virginia, Ohio, and North Carolina. They varied in size from 500 members up to 2300 members.

Tom has also worked for Princeton Theological Seminary as the Associate Vice President for Advancement and also at Brick Presbyterian Church (NYC) as the Director of Seminarian program. He received his certificate from the Interim/Transitional Training Program in 2013 and has worked with Westfield Presbyterian Church in New Jersey during a time of transition. Tom lives in Yardley with his wife Corrine, with whom he recently celebrated 55 years of marriage. They have two grown children and three grandchildren.

Becca is a Los Angeles native who joins the staff at DPC after a cross country trip with her husband Mike and two children Maisie & Royce (and three dogs.) She received a double major in History and Classics and a minor in Latin from California State University, Long Beach. From there, she continued to receive her Masters of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary. After seminary she worked as an Associate Pastor, in the areas of Spiritual Formation of adults, youth, children and families at Calvary Presbyterian Church in South Pasadena and then San Marino Community Church.

Beyond her ministry with a church, Becca has recently used her gifts as Moderator of her previous Presbytery, taken opportunities for continuing education through a pastoral leadership program through Pepperdine University, and developed a network of Southern California Presbyterian youth ministry.

Her husband’s Philadelphia-based family has had several years to outfit her in all the Philly team gear for game days from the Eagles to the Phillies. But to be honest, her favorite part of watching a Phillies game is seeing her kids giggle their heads off when the Fanatic does silly dances!


Pauline was born in Scranton, PA and grew up in Philadelphia. She and her family moved to Bucks County in 1992.
