Jordan Slaughter and his wife, Samantha, are originally from Frankfort and met in their high school youth group at Buck Run Baptist. They were married while completing their undergraduate degrees at Western Kentucky University and serving at Burton Memorial Baptist in Bowling Green. After graduation, the couple continued to reside in the college town until they felt a strong calling to move closer to home. God led them to Lawrenceburg. It was here that Jordan felt God wanted him to further his education at Southern Seminary and accept the role ministry would play in his life. Shortly thereafter, the couple also recognized the call God has placed on all believers to care for the orphaned and widowed. Through a series of events that could only have been orchestrated by a loving God, they were able to become foster parents and eventually adopt their son Xavier. Only months later, they welcomed their first birth child, James, into the world. They are excited to see how God will continue to grow their family and ministry at Hillcrest!
