AGTV was started as a means for dynamically resourcing the Assemblies of God constituency by providing thousands of videos for viewing and embedding all in one easy-to-navigate Web site. Through AGTV, all AG ministries have the opportunity to share their media resources with people all over the world. Not only does this offer a one-of-a-kind opportunity for spreading the word about each ministry, but it gives almost anyone instant access to all the various resources on the site.
Many of the videos on AGTV come from the Assemblies of God National Headquarters in Springfield, Missouri, where the national offices for Youth Ministries, Women’s Ministries, Royal Rangers, Discipleship, Ministry Direct and other ministries produce resources for churches and church members.
A growing number of videos, though, are coming from outside the national office, as Assemblies of God churches and universities are starting to catch on and add their videos to the site. Any AG ministry can get their videos on AGTV and we encourage all of them to get plugged in.
If you’re an AG church, school or organization, getting your videos on AGTV is simple. All you have to do is send them to us!
We also appreciate it if you send us a high-resolution photo to use as the thumbnail image for the channel or feed that we’ll create for your videos. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
