Emily Wright

Rev. Emily Wright
Senior Associate Pastor

Emily Wright is one of the senior associate pastors at Roswell Presbyterian Church. She oversees worship, congregational care, and mission outreach. She heads up the Adult Discipleship Ministry and focuses specifically on ministry to young adults and women. 

Emily went to the University of Houston, where she played volleyball. She received her Master of Divinity from the Candler School of Theology at Emory. Emily is currently working on her Doctorate of Ministry from Columbia Theological Seminary. Emily loves her career in ministry, but her true love is her family. She could not be both mom and pastor without the help and teamwork of her husband Charlie. She has been married to Charlie since 2001 and they are blessed with three crazy boys: Logan, Riley, and Elijah. In addition to her love of her family, she has affection for three other things: cooking, dancing, and traveling.    


Rev. Lyndsay Lee Slocum
Senior Associate Pastor
770-649-4519

Lyndsay is passionate about walking alongside families in their discovery of a God who loves unconditionally and helping them learn to worship, pray, and serve together. She is also called to serving marriages, parents, families, and the RPC community.

Lyndsay grew up in the Columbia area of South Carolina and is very proud to be a Carolina girl. She graduated from Presbyterian College with a degree in Christian Education and then headed to Columbia Theological Seminary where she graduated with a Masters of Divinity in 2004. During her time in seminary, Lyndsay worked at Peachtree Presbyterian Church with the middle school ministry.

Lyndsay joined the Roswell Presbyterian Church staff in 2005. She is married to Scott and they have two sons, Brandon and Drew, and a puppy named Ziplock. The things she cherishes the most include moments of deep laughter that make her eyes water and her stomach muscles sore, the fact that her boys will still hug her in public, almost any kind of cheese, sharing the table with others as sacrament and holy connection, and the transformative grace of Jesus Christ as she witnesses it in unexpected places.


Mary Cox

Rev. Mary Cox
Associate Pastor - Mission Outreach
770-649-4506

Mary brings to the ministry staff of Roswell Presbyterian the missional experience of serving as new church development pastor in Mesquite, Nevada, north of Las Vegas. Using her gifts of preaching and relationship-based evangelism, God grew the community of faith in numbers, but more importantly, in spiritual leadership and discipleship. Ordained later-in-career-life, Mary draws from experiences of working in a wide variety of professional and volunteer venues.

Raised in the Kentucky foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Mary has since traveled extensively and lived with her husband Bill in cities ranging from the East to the West Coasts. They have three daughters: Hannah, in Washington, D.C., Meredith, at Princeton Theological Seminary, and Maddie, at Georgia Southern University.

Seeking the fresh movement of God’s Spirit in the world and inviting others to enter the joy of serving Christ is Mary’s passion and direction in life. Her hobbies are Bible study (no joke), reading, hiking, and singing women's barbershop!
