James Paternoster became President of Interface Ministries in 2019 after more than 35 years with InterVarsity in Detroit and Ann Arbor, the last 25 years serving graduate professional students and faculty.

After growing up in Nigeria and Niger, James came to the US to attend Wayne State University where he studied history and, later, philosophy.

Having been welcomed warmly in Africa, Europe, Asia and the Americas, he finds great delight in the warm welcome iFace staff and their partners extend to Internationals from all over the world in Jesus’ name.
