Dr. Kenn and Dr. Deborah Gordon are the founding co-pastors of Centre for Spiritual Living Kelowna. The Gordons began their Science of Mind studies in 1986, taking classes and ministerial training in Palm Desert, California. Once they graduated, their vision was to bring the Science of Mind teaching to their hometown and the Okanagan region, and in 1993 they did just that. Their vision has created a community that is now the spiritual home to more than 500 like-minded people taking part in Sunday services, classes and workshops.
As gifted and inspiring speakers, devoted teachers and spiritual counsellors, the Gordons’ commitment to serving others extends far beyond the geographical boundaries of their Centre.
Dr. Kenn is the Spiritual Leader of the Centers for Spiritual Living, having served in numerous capacities on the board of directors,including President of the former International Centers for Spiritual Living since 1999. In 2005 he was named Minister of the Year and received his Doctorate of Humanities.
Dr. Deborah holds a Bachelor of Arts in psychology and since the early 2000s has co-chaired the International organization's annual one-week conference attended by more than 700 delegates from around North America. She currently serves on the Centers for Spiritual Living Department of Education committee.
