Ken Shigematsu is senior pastor of Tenth Church (www.tenth.ca) in Vancouver, British Columbia, one of the largest and most diverse city-center churches in Canada. Before entering pastoral ministry, he worked for the Sony Corporation in Tokyo, Japan.
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.
His first book, God in My Everything: How an Ancient Rhythm Helps Busy People Enjoy God (Zondervan, 2013) describes how a rule of life that weaves spiritual practices into our daily rhythms of relationships, study, work, and play provides a kind of trellis that supports a God-filled life. It was selected as the Word Guild 2014 Christian Living book of the year, and is available in Danish translation as Gud i Mit Alt (Mediacellen, 2014).
Ken lives in Vancouver, Canada with his wife Sakiko and their son Joey. Proceeds from his writing support the work of World Vision and similar organizations around the world. He invites readers to join him on Twitter @KenShigematsu.
