Born in San Antonio, Texas, Nathan S. Sloan and Cynthia L. Hernandez, high school sweethearts, married on February 7, 1993. During the first few years of marriage complications began to arise and they struggled to stay together.
After their third year of marriage they both decided to settle on a divorce, which was to proceed only after the Christmas holidays. During this time period they had two small children and hoped to keep a good relationship for their girls. Everything changed that Christmas Eve in 1996 when Cynthia was killed in a car wreck and pronounced dead at the scene. She had a life after death experience which changed both their lives.
This intense experience became the pinnacle in their understanding for their purpose in life and Jesus Christ. Nathan and Cynthia have traveled/ preached in several places testifying over her experience as well as the change in their restored marriage. They both have appeared on television appearing on Daystar Celebration sharing their experiences.
They now have four children, Ashliee, Kayla, Sara, and Josiah. Nathan, son of Glenn and Louise Sloan, is the youngest and only son of four children. Glenn Sloan, Nathan's father was an associate pastor and later became an evangelist of the Gospel. Glenn's death was in 1999 and from that point on was the turning point in which Nathan began to carry out the footsteps of what his father had started in the ministry.
Nathan and his family traveled for two years in different parts of the U.S. for a season to minister as God would lead. They then settled in the Houston area and began a small construction company. After a few years in the construction field God began to put in their heart to help people through ministry in a more prominent way. They began having full on services every Saturday night in January of 2010. Their two daughters Ashliee and Kayla began taking part in the meetings through music and the youth ministry, and currently do the Worship and Media for both. As of now, the whole family has an integral part of the church and will continue to walk in unity as a family to accomplish God's complete purpose in their lives as well as those God puts in their paths.
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Apostle Nathan Sloan, also known as "Dad" to many of the Faith For Life sons and daughters, is a mighty man of God who operates in and through all offices of the five-fold ministry. His yieldedness to God, Apostolic vision, prophetic accuracy, revelatory and relevant teaching, heart to travel to reach the lost and wayward children, and mission to bring revival back to America is extremely evident at Faith For Life Church. He is full of the fire of the Holy Ghost and has accepted the call to speak and preach the bold truth of the true Gospel that is lacking in our society today. He leads by example as a powerful image of the role of a man of God in family as a husband and father, as well as in ministry. He teaches to carry revival, walk upright before the Lord boldly in obedience to the unction of the Holy Ghost. Through a mighty encounter with the Lord as a young man sitting beside his father's death bed, Apostle Nathan opened up to God and sought Him like never before. This encounter was a pivotal point in his and his family's life for God to become more real to them than ever before. Countless encounters, miracles, victories, testimonies and many years later, all six members of the Sloan family can now be found serving and leading beautifully within the ministry. Those that choose to also walk as sons and daughters of God first and Apostle, know and trust his headship to equip them for the work of service and building up the body of Christ.
Pastor Cynthia Sloan, also known as "Mom" to many of the Faith For Life sons and daughters, is without a doubt the backbone to the ministry. Behind every service, event, revival, classroom or meeting her character and integrity can be seen everywhere. She is a genuine, loving Pastor and mother to many by her transparency to call everyone under her guidance to come up higher, walk in excellence and get real with their walk with the Lord. During an encounter with death in 1993 Pastor Cyndi was pronounced dead at the scene of a car accident and stood before the Lord. The Lord's words to her have now shaped and impacted the lives of all those that have come in contact with her with a receptive heart and open spirit. By defeating stage four cancer, she also knows just what it means to stand in faith and fight for healing and victory. She leads the women of the church to be the Woman, Wife and Mother that this world could never teach someone to be. To do what is right and honorable until the Lord, unto their husbands and children. She can be found at any service worshipping on stage with the worship team, giving the announcements, checking on classrooms, making sure everything is flowing smoothly, eager to meet newcomers and ministering alongside of her husband of 28 years, Apostle Nathan.
