Before her dramatic entrance onto the national stage as a cutting-edge, Pharisee-kicking, tell-it-like-it-is preacher and internet communications innovator, singer-songwriter Monica Dennington first found her voice on the stages of Kansas City and in the emerging local Christian music scene in the late 1990's. Although already an experienced vocalist, she was first coaxed into the songwriter's spotlight by producer/ manager Gary Dennington, whom she met while recording for the GJP Project in 1998. Her bold fusion of stormy, piano-driven songwriting, raw, dramatic vocals, and powerful, poetic lyrics were met with enthusiasm. After her first two cofeehouse gigs, Dennington was invited to open for Sixpence None The Richer at the legendary New Earth Coffeehouse in early 1999, when their mainstream hit “Kiss Me” was topping the charts worldwide. With the ensuing, almost-instant local recognition, she continued to perform and write vigorously. Gary and Monica tied the knot in June 1999, and have been making history ever since. Establishing Tic Toc Ministries as a feeding ministry to the poor out of their apartment kitchen in Branson, MO, Gary and Monica have been on a God-sized, God-led adventure for the past thirteen years. From opening the Tic Toc Loft in downtown Springfield, MO; to navigating the early “wild west” days of Myspace and YouTube, forging a path for Christian broadcasters on the internet; to launching the first major Christian internet broadcasting network to hit the scene—The FWBN—in 2009—they have continued to impact the world with the power of God's Word. Ever on the cutting edge of new media, they have produced and released over 350 Bible teaching and music videos. With over 5 million video views on over 200 websites, Dennington's music has enjoyed massive distribution, not only from her fan pages, but also from her popular teaching videos in which they are featured.
