James B Notkin

Vision Lead

As Union’s Vision Lead, James B. seeks to work with the community to live into our call to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with Jesus. Before Union, James B had seasons (ok, make that years) in college, youth, adult, and new ministries with Ann Arbor First Presbyterian Church and University Presbyterian Church in Seattle. James B. continually is being schooled by his three kids adding to the education he received at Princeton Theological Seminary. A native of Seattle he loves the rain but increasingly appreciates how sunshine makes biking and tennis more enjoyable.

Jeff enjoys going for long walks in his adopted city of Tacoma with his wife Amy, and two children Everett and Cora.
