For 54 years, Rev. Doug Ford has led the congregation at Hardin’s Chapel Bible Church, in Ragland. Ford now says he plans to stay at the church, but in “a comfortable pew” with his wife, Mildred, as a member of the congregation.
Ford is retiring as pastor at Hardin’s Chapel, after a lifetime of worship and service that includes “over 2,000” funerals, a congregation that has grown steadily and a Dial-A-Devotion program that fielded “probably one million” calls.
Doug and Mildred have been valuable members of the community in Ragland, and will hopefully continue to be vital parts of the congregation at Hardin’s Chapel in the future. Congratulations to them both, and God bless.
