Biography: Mark and Denise enjoy ministering their unique style of encouragement and joy through teaching and original music with Sound Ministries International. Stepping out of the typical religious role, they bring the love and faith of Jesus wherever they go. Their goal is to get God's people to understand His love and grace so they can hear and receive from Him themselves. They often minister the work through instructional songs to convey the truths of God's word. In addition to their contemporary music, parodies and books of mini-teachings (A Sound Word, Vol. 1 & 2) they also assist churches, music teams and outreaches with hands on instruction.
The Abernethys met Dave Duell while living in Illinois in 1992.In 1995 they moved to Colorado and had opportunity to work in different capacities with a national ministry including editing radio broadcasts and forming the Encouragement Department.

Denise plays bass guitar and given new meaning to the work exhortation.
