Learning to Live (L2L) is a discipleship and spiritual formation curriculum designed for individuals and communities seeking to follow Jesus, making and becoming disciples who are committed to living in the reality of God's kingdom, loving God with heart, mind, soul, and strength, and loving neighbors as themselves. L2L was written within a specific, urban, multicultural, multiethnic, multiclass context (Christ City Church in Washington, DC) but it also has much to offer to any and every Jesus-follower in the twenty-first century.


Rev. Dr. Justin B. Fung serves as the Pastor of Leadership & Spiritual Formation at Christ City Church in Washington, DC, where he gets to live out his passion for discipleship and spiritual formation that is evidenced by justice and peace, particularly in multicultural, multiethnic, and multiclass contexts.


A pastor for over a dozen years and an urban liturgist for more than two decades, he is also an Affiliate Assistant Professor of Missional Leadership at Fuller Theological Seminary. He is a member of the DC Mayor’s Interfaith Council, having also previously served as the chair of the board of trustees for the V3 Church Planting Movement and on the Advisory Council for the Fuller Center for Spiritual Formation.


Born and raised in Hong Kong, and educated in London, England and Pasadena, CA, Justin now lives in the Trinidad neighborhood of Washington, DC, with his wife Carolyn and their two kids.
