For the past 26 years, Jeff Slaughter has been laughing, singing, dancing and worshiping with kids! His heart’s desire is to equip them with God’s word through music and to help them discover what a passionate relationship with Jesus is all about.
Having grown up in Greenwood, Mississippi, he first attended Mississippi State University, then transferred to Nashville to attend Belmont University where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Commercial Music/Composition and Arranging Emphasis. Upon graduating, he signed with StarSong Publishing and his first radio single, “One More Broken Heart” became a #1 hit for the group Point of Grace.
Slaughter, who has most recently signed with Brentwood-Benson Music Publishing, has written scores of songs for Lifeway Christian Stores VBS curriculum, including the music for Outrigger Island, Boomerang Express, Saddle Ridge Ranch, Big Apple Adventure and Amazing Wonders Aviation. One of Slaughter’s best-loved VBS songs includes “We Believe” from 2005′s Ramblin’ Road Trip VBS curriculum. The song also became a top-selling choral anthem for adult choirs that same year.
More than 46 million children have sung Slaughter’s songs over the years, according to Jerry Wooley, VBS Ministry Specialist at LifeWay Christian Resources.
