This weekend and on August 24-25, we warmly welcome the Rev. Dr. J. Thomas Kort as our guest preacher at both of our worship services. Tom serves as the Vice President for Advancement at Princeton Theological Seminary — a position once held by BRPC’s 15th pastor, Dr. William Felmeth. Previously Tom served in the parish ministry for over 40 years, most recently for 27 years as senior pastor of the 2300 member Sardis Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, NC. Dennis served as an associate pastor with Tom as his first call out of seminary, and continues to count him a valued mentor and friend. Tom is a gifted pastor, preacher, and teacher, and a passionate cheerleader for the transformative impact a vital congregation can have on the lives that it touches, and on the world far beyond it’s doors.
