According to Assemblies of God (A/G) General Superintendent Thomas E. Trask, the General Council of the Assemblies of God has been discussing plans with Inspiration Networks (INSP) to cooperate and develop television programs with the intention of reaching out to meet the spiritual and physical needs of people. Both A/G and INSP refer to this effort as Cooperative Ministry because it is the cooperation between the two organizations.

Through this cooperation, INSP will include television programs for the Assemblies of God and airing some special programs as well. The first of these specials, entitled "A Caring Community," is scheduled to air on Inspiration Networks in October.

David Cerullo, president and CEO of The Inspiration Networks, commented that INSP is pleased to work with the Assemblies of God for its reputation of reaching out to positively impact people's lives emotionally and spiritually in relation with God. Cerullo also said that A/G has helped numerous people around the world through many other programs and activities besides the traditional venues in churches, such as publishing magazines, establishing higher education programs with several colleges and many types of humanitarian outreach.

While comparing with A/G, Cerullo complimented INSP for its diverse curriculum. "The Inspiration Networks also has a diverse means of reaching people for God's kingdom," Cerullo adds. "Our diverse outreach include several television networks, the production of daily ministry programs, an television program and club for children, and an outreach for teens. The two ministries will complement one another as we seek new ways to share the good news of the Gospel."

INSP is a 24 hour-a-day cable television network which targets millions of Americans who embrace inspirational values. INSP features original and exclusive music, children's programs and a wide variety of different ministry programming in effort of impact lives worldwide for Christ through media.
