Sloan was raised by an educator (and insurance adjustor, CPA) and has been an educator for over forty years.  His first teaching position was as an adjunct lecturer at Hardin-Simmons University, followed by full-time teaching at Southwestern Seminary, and Baylor University.  For a 15 year period during his days as a full-time teacher, he was the interim pastor at over 25 churches in Texas and Oklahoma.  Sloan has been known as a teaching pastor.

 At Baylor University, he was a professor of New Testament for fifteen years, during which time he was asked by the president to form a seminary.  As an incorporator and founding dean of Truett Seminary, he put together the curriculum and faculty.  That seminary is now more than twenty years old.

After being named Dean of Truett Seminary, and serving in that capacity for 2 years, Sloan was elected the twelfth President of Baylor University. He served as president for ten years, plus one year as Baylor’s Chancellor before resigning and becoming president of Houston Baptist University, where he has now served more than ten years. At HBU, along with colleagues, he wrote the visionary document called The Ten Pillars.

Through the years Sloan has given numerous academic lectures, led marriage and family retreats, and has consulted both nationally and internationally on the development of higher education projects.
