Jeff Slaughter lived in Europe for 16 years with his wife, Kathy, and three children: Kayleigh, Justin and Nick. Jeff and Kathy are currently based in the USA and Jeff travels to Europe for ministry several times a year.
Raised in the church, Jeff accepted Christ as his Savior at the early age of eight – just about the time he began taking piano lessons. At the age of 13, he began playing piano at a small church in Shreveport, Louisiana every Sunday morning, Sunday night and Wednesday night. He grew to love the music ministry and has since served as pianist, vocalist and worship leader at churches in Louisiana, Mississippi, France and Belgium.
When the Slaughters moved to Europe, Jeff learned that the majority of church worship teams were volunteers with a passion for serving in worship music ministry but with few training resources. Thus the founding of the European Worship Institute (formerly known as the Brussels European Worship Institute.)
Over the years, EWI has grown to organize training events in:
* Belgium (Brussels, Charleroi and Antwerp)
* The Netherlands (Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Delft)
* France (Paris and Tours)
* Austria (Vienna)
* Italy (Venice and Rome)
* Kosovo (Pristina)
* Turkey (Istanbul)
* Morocco (Casablanca)
* Portugal (Cascais)
* Spain (El Puerto de Santa Maria, Barcelona and Cordoba)
* Indonesia (Jakarta)
In addition to his passion for worship ministry, Jeff also writes church plays, one of which is available at: http://www.christmas-at-bethlehem-inn.com.
