UPDATE: On April 19, Pastor Matthew and Pastor Justin shared some exciting news about upcoming changes in the leadership of our church.

After a lot of prayer, discernment, and counsel, the pastors and elders sensed God’s leading to invite Rev. Dr. Justin Fung into a new role within Christ City Church — as Pastor of Leadership and Spiritual Formation. What this role effectively means is that, effective May 1, Justin will be serving as the primary pastoral leader at Christ City Church, giving tactical leadership and supervision to the staff as well as providing strategic vision and leadership for our Church as a whole.

Matthew’s new role and title will be that of Pastor of Teaching and Outreach; his focus within the life of our church will continue to be preaching and teaching, as well as giving additional leadership to the ways our church engages on mission locally and globally.

To hear more, including how they came to this decision, watch the video below:

We are an elder-led church, meaning our Elder Board is responsible for discerning the leading of God for our church’s direction and vision, with help and input from our Leadership Council, which includes the staff, ministry team leaders, and small group leaders.
