FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - Written by: Katelyn Kappes
Turfway Park’s first chaplain is returning to the racetrack to once again serve as chaplain. Rev. Doug Eldridge served as chaplain 37-years ago after graduating from Cincinnati Christian University in 1978.
Eldridge has served as pastorate at Antioch Church of Christ in Corinth, KY., pastor of Belleview Church of Christ, and pastor of Hebron Church of Christ. He volunteers as Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport’s public safety chaplain and Hebron Fire Department chaplain.
Eldridge will be replacing Bobby Aldridge as chaplain and will be holding services at the track at 7 p.m. on Mondays.
The Ministry also includes the community center which provides clothing, towels, sheets, personal care items as well as coffee and conversations to backside workers. Eldridge will meet with backside workers in the barns daily also.
