ÂWeÂre excited that Dr. Evans has partnered with The Inspiration Networks in using new technology to spread the Gospel,Â said Larry Sims, Senior Vice-President, Ministry Sales for The Inspiration Networks. ÂBroadband video is one of the most effective platforms for ministries of all sizes to reach the masses with the faith message.Â
