Who We Are

Chaplains & Staff

The Rev. Kevin Aldridge


Chaplain Kevin enjoys doing God’s work and is honored to be a part of changing the lives of the children in detention through the ECM chaplaincy. He has served as a part-time chaplain at the St. Louis City Detention Center since 2011. During his time as chaplain, he has touched the lives of many children in detention by building relationships and restoring hope.

Over fifteen years ago, Kevin answered the call to youth ministry. He was ordained and served for ten years as youth pastor at his church where he is now assistant pastor. Working with underserved youth for the past 11 years as the director of an afterschool program has enhanced Kevin’s ability to properly minister to the youth in detention.

One of Kevin’s greatest accomplishments is his marriage of 25 years to his wife Karen. Together, they have four children Kevin Jr. (wife Raven and their son Mikey), Kory (our angel in heaven), Kourtnie and Keldon.
