Ken Shigematsu is senior pastor of Tenth Church in Vancouver, British Columbia, one of the largest and most diverse city-center churches in Canada. Before entering pastoral ministry, he worked for Sony in Tokyo, Japan. The intense work schedule led him to explore personal disciplines that could bring order to his life, from those of his samurai ancestors to St. Benedict’s rule for Christian communities.
His first book, God in My Everything: How an Ancient Rhythm Helps Busy People Enjoy God (Zondervan, 2013) describes how a personal rule, or spiritual rhythm, can support the growth of a God-filled life. His second book, Survival Guide for the Soul: How to Flourish Spiritually in a World that Pressures Us to Achieve (Zondervan, 2018) examines how specific spiritual practices reorder our lives and focus our priorities.
Ken is a longtime member of Leighton’s mentoring community.
