Before being elected Alabama’s Bishop Suffragan in 2008, Sloan served as Curate for Holy Cross in Olive Branch and St. Timothy’s in Horn Lake, Mississippi (1981–83; both in the Memphis, Tennessee metropolitan area); as Vicar of the Church of the Incarnation in West Point, Mississippi (1983–86); as Rector of All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Grenada, Mississippi (1986–90); as Chaplain at the University of Mississippi and Assistant Rector at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Oxford, Mississippi (1990–93); and as Rector of St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in Huntsville, Alabama (1993–2007).

In 1987, Sloan married the former Tina Brown of Leland, Mississippi; they met at a Special Session, a summer camp for people with mental and physical disabilities at Camp Bratton-Green, the Episcopal church camp in the Mississippi diocese. In 1989 their son McKee was born, and in 1994 their daughter Mary Nell was born.
Sloan has participated in many mission trips to Honduras. Within the diocese, Sloan has previously served as director of Special Session, housed at the diocese's Camp McDowell, after founding the program in the Diocese of Alabama.
Kee Sloan is the author of two semi-autobiographical books, Jabbok and its sequel Beulah.
