As 2014 comes to a close and the exponential growth of the Tell Your Story campaign in the state of Kentucky, the Kentucky Baptist Convention, the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Promise of Hope Ministries have partnered with RU Institute again to launch Cuentenos Su Historia, a website dedicated to feature stories of victory in Christ in Spanish. "This project will extend the reach and impact of the Tell Your Story Campaign into the Spanish speaking word and we anticipate that this will have a lasting postive effect for the Gospel with Spanish speakers all over the world," said Andy MacDonald the KBC liaison for the project. "Thank you, Dr. Tim! And please express our gratitude to the RUI team for all their hard work as well. Thanks also to the SBTS and their partnership and to Carlos and Job at the KBC for doing the translation work and their willingness to listen to the stories! This was definitely a team effort."
After hearing from its many clients, especially non-profit organizations, RU Institute has launched a social media academy featuring two courses on the new social media powerhouse Periscope. "The goal was to give our clients and their staff members something that they can rely on to give them quality information about these platforms that they can use to leverage their mission and amplify their message," said RUI's President, Dr. Tim Stafford, "our goal is to make this academy a place that will be the go to choice for our clients in the future as we continue to create new courses and roll them out over the next year, and to make it so affordable, that it is a no brainer." Currently the Periscope course is being offered for free until January 2016 when the price for ANY courses will be only $9.95.
