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 20 years ago, Kevin answered the call to youth ministry. He was ordained and served for 10 years as youth pastor at his church where he is now assistant pastor. Working with underserved youth for the past 15 years as the director of an afterschool program helped enhance Kevin’s ability to properly minister to the youth in detention.

One of Kevin’s greatest accomplishments is his marriage of 30 years to his wife Karen. Together, they have four children Kevin Jr. (wife Raven and their son Mikey and daughters Kourie and Kiersten), Kory (our angel in heaven), Kourtnie and Keldon. Chaplain Kevin is also the owner of Aldridge Real Estate & Aldridge Development in partnership with wife Karen and their children. He is actively involved in restoring homes and promoting homeownership in disenfranchised communities.
