Sam Cox comes to Latham after serving more than five years at State Street United Methodist Church, where he was Director of Music and Communications. He was also a local Lay Servant, occasionally delivering sermons as the need arose. Before that, he served smaller Methodist, Brethren, and Baptist congregations on a part-time basis. He has been a life member of The Hymn Society in the United States and Canada since 1984.

Sam wandered about the country in the early 2000s teaching music history, literature, appreciation, theory, and research methodology at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, Middle Tennessee State University, and East Carolina University.
His hobbies include learning more about railroad history, streetcars, and ocean liners,
especially the Titanic. Sam is an avid walker on both sidewalks and trails.
