RZIM Academy in French Launches February 6
Posted by Ruth Malhotra on January 26, 2017
The RZIM Academy, an online training curriculum designed to help equip individuals to share and defend their faith – is launching in the French language on Monday, February 6. Enrollment for the 12-week Core Module (“Module Fondamental”) is open now and scholarships are available.
The Core Module was translated into French last Summer and beta tested in the Fall. RZIM formally announced the Academy in French at the Global Evangelists Forum in Vichy, France, on January 21. Ivy Tyson, RZIM Academy Facilitator, and Fabien Maldonado, one of the moderators, trained eight moderator candidates representing French-speaking countries in Europe, Africa, and North America. Momentum for the launch of the Core Module is building, and there is tremendous potential to impact French speakers around the world.
The French translation marks the third language offering for the RZIM Academy, following English and Spanish. Over 2,000 individuals have enrolled in the Academy overall, and the Spanish enrollment has exceeded 350 since it was launched in October 2016. RZIM continues to explore opportunities to expand the Academy offerings into additional languages.
