With a rich heritage in ministry, Tara Sloan embraced the call of God and followed in the footsteps of her father, uncles, and several male cousins by becoming an ordained, licensed minister, the first woman in her family. Through powerful, anointed preaching and teaching, Tara speaks to what God has deposited into the lives of both Christians and the lost. An encourager by nature, she also operates through prophetic exhortation. Her heart is that people awaken their potential, discover their possibility, and become their destiny in Christ.

Tara and her husband Craig (of 17 years) are a dynamic power couple for Christ driven to impact both the Kingdom of God and darkness. They have ministered together as evangelists, staff pastors and co-pastors in the local church. Tara is also the author of Becoming Destiny Driven and the upcoming Confessions of a Destiny a Driven Diva. The Sloan’s currently reside in Chicago where they minister in the areas of Assimilation and Outreach at Evangel World Outreach Center.

Tara's Blog- Destiny Driven was nominated by Deanna at Lifetime Intimate Portraits.
Deanna wrote: I would like to nominate Tara Sloan at Destiny Driven. ( I’ve known Tara and been a close personal friend for a long time before she ever started blogging. She’s the real deal. She’s amazing. The thing is, blogging has given her a voice to the world where many people are meeting for the first time the friend of deep character and passion that I’ve known for years. I feel like the blogosphere has given one of the best kept secrets of the body of Christ – Tara Sloan – a place to shine and let her powerful voice be heard. She’s a gift to the body of Christ, and that’s why I’m nominating her.
Thank you Deanna for your nomination!
