Denise Cogliati

Ministry & Facilities Manager

Denise describes her role as, “doing a lot of the non-Jesusy stuff around Journey that can get lost in the shuffle.” She works hard to make sure our property and facilities are not just maintained but improved upon and always available for anyone to use.

Denise earned a B.S. in public administration, which prepared her to help us keep everything running smoothly at Journey.

Outside of Journey, Denise spends most of her time raising her three children.

Denise has been a familiar face here at Journey since 2018 when she began working with parent’s day out and Journey Kids. She officially joined the staff as the Ministry & Facilities Manager in September 2020.
