Associate Pastor of Discipleship
Joey began his ministry with Signal Pres in 2016. As the Associate Pastor of Discipleship, it is Joey’s privilege to help men and women “to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge” (Ephesians 3:18-19) so that we can together grow in grace and maturity in the Christian life.
Through corporate worship, discipleship groups, EQUIP, Sunday school, and oversight of men’s and women’s ministries, Joey works to create an environment where growing disciples can learn the freeing way of the Lord Jesus.
Originally from Starkville, MS, Joey returned there after seminary to serve as associate and then interim senior pastor of First Presbyterian Church before moving to St Andrews, Scotland. He attended Rhodes College, the Trinity Fellows Academy, and Duke Divinity School, and received his PhD from the University of St Andrews in systematic theology.

Joey married fellow Mississippi native Kate in 2005 and they have two boys. They enjoy traveling, cooking, and making the most of their favorite city in the US — Chattanooga.
Outside of the Signal Pres office you’ll likely find Joey continuing his quest to find the best salsa and barbecue in town, working at one of Chattanooga’s many great coffee shops, or running on the Brow. He and his family are season ticket holders with Chattanooga FC, and you’ll find them there almost every home match.
