Who is Mike Slaughter?

"We all have a purpose here on earth... that's the easy part. How do you realize that purpose?... Well, that's why I am here."

- Mike Slaughter

Mike was born in Long Island, NY, but spent a lot of his childhood in Charleston, SC and Gastonia, NC. As the oldest of 4 siblings, he was the one that always took charge and led others. His childhood was not a walk in the park. He was sexually abused and involved himself in some things as a teen that almost took his life. After receiving a football scholarship, he thought his life was complete. However, after injuring himself, those football dreams faded away and he found himself questioning what his purpose was on this Earth.

He fought a tough battle with depression and suicidal ideations, but no matter what, he always had a light within him. After awhile, he started to go to church again and was mentored by 3 men that helped turn his life around. Not too long after these positive relationships manifested, he realized that people would constantly come to him for advice, prayer, and wise counsel. He would always receive feedback from others about how he helped them find their purpose in life. Throughout the last decade, Mike has spoken at countless leader events, retreats, church services, camp trips, and even large protests.

Now, Mike is a husband to his beautiful wife, Sedae, and father to his three amazing children (David, Miguel II, and Serenity). You can find Mike anywhere there are people that need hope, love, or faith. He enjoys helping others find their truly divine purpose through fellowship, speaking at events, and mentoring. He says, "God is very specific with how he wants us to be in relationship with others. He desires for us to love everyone, and I plan on doing that while encouraging others to do the same. Once someone feels valued and loved, they can begin to see more clearly. And once someone can see more clearly, that's when purpose can be found."
