His role involves close work with community partners, student leaders, and University colleagues.

Adam joins the center staff after many years in faith-based and non-profit contexts, most recently serving as a community development and justice catalyst for a large denomination of churches and non-profit organizations. Adam is the founder of Jubilee Ventures, a non-profit focused on economic development here in South Bend and serves on the board of the Beacon Community Resource Center. His first book, Becoming a Just Church: Cultivating Communities of God's Shalom, was published in February 2019 by Intervarsity Press. His current writing project is focused on economic justice and cultivating economic and social flourishing in local neighborhoods. His doctorate from Missio Seminary (Philadelphia, Pa.) focused on the development of leadership in diverse and urban contexts.
