Our annual DEEP FAITH week is February 16-20, 2015. Through special morning and evening chapel gatherings, we will ask God to examine our hearts and transform our minds—with the hope that our love for God and one another would be revived. Ken Shigematsu, author of God in My Everything, will be with us to open God’s Word, lead us in prayer and direct us towards a renewal of loving God with all of our hearts, souls, strength and minds.
Ken Shigematsu is the Senior Pastor of Tenth Church in Vancouver, BC, one of the largest and most diverse city-center churches in Canada. He received the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2013, which is awarded to Canadians in recognition for their outstanding contributions to the country.
Before entering pastoral ministry, he worked for the Sony Corporation in Tokyo. The intense work schedule at Sony led him to explore personal disciplines that could bring order to his life—from those of his samurai ancestors to the rule St. Benedict developed for Christian communities.
Ken studied business economics and philosophy at Wheaton College, Illinois, receiving his bachelor’s degree. He holds a Master of Divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and a doctorate from San Francisco Theological Seminary.
His bestselling book God in My Everything (Zondervan 2013) is about how people can experience Christ, not only in their formal prayers but in their home life, studies, work, and play through the ancient practice of a rule of life.
Ken lives in Vancouver with his wife, Sakiko, and their son, Joey. They enjoy exploring nature together through hiking and sailing and time with Sasha their golden retriever. Proceeds from his writing support the work of World Vision and similar organizations around the world.
