She was ordained in MCC in 2010 and has experience with MCC at a national level, including the Board of Pensions, Judiciary Team, and Clergy Well-Being Team. Her passion is helping people connect with God. She is also a passionate advocate for social justice. She is an avid reader, a self-described nerd and loves to explore new technology. She and her wife Judy have three sons, three dogs and a cat. They love to camp and explore their new home state of Colorado.
Denise K. Foerch is a Certified Spiritual Director who underwent training in Colorado Springs at the Benet Hill Monastery.

She led our Small Group Ministry for one year, she was the Praise Band Leader for four years, and she has facilitated prayer, Scripture and book study groups.
Prior to her work within MCC, Denise spent 19 years working for a large, well-known para-church organization.

She was a speaker and soloist at various gatherings, seminars, and conferences.
Those who know Denise well describe her as open, warm, caring, wise, and strong. Recognizing that all who come to Spiritual Direction have their own individual spirituality, Denise said, “Although my personal faith-base is Christian, I honor and welcome all faith traditions.”
