William A. Slaughter

     W.A. Slaughter (1923-2003 is known for his Texas landscapes, depicting scenes filled with bluebonnets, live oaks, and rambling streams and had works displayed in all 50 states and 16 foreign countries.

     Earlier in his life, he was called to the ministry as an ordained Lutheran minister following graduation from Texas Lutheran University in Seguin, Texas, Capital University and Seminary in Columbus, Ohio. He served congregations in Lubbock, Texas and Mexico City. William Slaughter returned to Dallas in 1964 to the pastorate of The King of Glory Lutheran Church. Skaughter touched many lives with his ministry and strong faith. He will always be remembered for his caring and generous heart.

     In 1971, after 19 years in the clergy at the age of 49, Bill made the difficult decision to retire as a Lutheran minister to follow another calling, that of glorifying God and inspiring others through his art. However, he didn't really retire from the ministry, in his own words " I really didn't leave the ministry, but I heard another call from the Lord". Bill was a past recipient of the Texas Lutheran Distinguished Alumni Award and in 2001 was recipient of an Honorary Doctorate degree from TLU. One of his most cherished achievements was to design the beautiful stain glass windows that now appear in The King of Glory Church. Bill also loved "his" Dallas Cowboys (thru good and bad years).
