Interim Program Director, Social Concerns Seminars

Adam Gustine serves as the assistant director of the social concerns seminars program. Social Concerns Seminars are courses that aim to address the intersections of justice, faith, service and action as informed by the Catholic Social Tradition. 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-profits. Adam is the founder of Jubilee Ventures, an economic incubator here in South Bend. His first book, Becoming a Just Church: Cultivating Communities of God's Shalom, was published in February 2019 by Intervarsity Press. His doctorate from Missio Seminary (Philadelphia, PA) focused on the development of leadership in diverse and urban contexts. He is interested in economic justice, and the role of faith based organizations in cultivating economic and social flourishing in their local neighborhoods.

He is married to Ann, and they are raising three kids to seek the peace of their city. When he is not otherwise engaged, you can almost certainly find him on the golf course or trying to reclaim his youth as a member of the Sappy Moffitt Baseball League.
