Sloan is known as a communicator. Years ago, a good friend said of him, rather wryly, that he had ‘a way with words’. Though often repeated by Sue – with raised eyebrows!—there is some aptness to the expression. He was a pastor during his years as a student at Baylor University and Princeton Seminary. While they lived in Germany, he and his wife Sue were dorm parents to boys in grades 7-12, and he was asked to be the pastor for the English language church in that area. After finishing his research doctorate in theology at the University of Basel, Switzerland, the Sloans moved back to the USA, and he became the pastor of a church in Roscoe, a small west Texas town. He also taught as an adjunct professor at a nearby university before moving to Fort Worth to teach at a seminary there. He was a popular teacher and preacher. During his time at the seminary, he became an interim pastor to a church in Houston, and over the next 16 years, was an interim pastor at churches throughout Texas, plus one in Oklahoma. He is known as an effective and popular communicator. Sloan is also known for his ability to “stand and deliver” on the spot. As a teacher, conference speaker, preacher, and in speeches at universities, conferences, and special events, Sloan has the ability to recall details and make connections in effective and inspiring ways. He can speak about family and raising children as easily as he can talk about the technical details of theology or business operations in higher education. Communication is an important part of his successes.
