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, Core Classes, discipleship groups, and oversight of men’s and women’s ministries, and various other book groups and studies, 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 for graduate school. 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, trail running, or expanding his already too large collection of books. Occasionally, you may even find him reading one!
