Funke Family Benefit Concert

April 7 12:00 - 1:30 pm  |  F-101

7202 W Northwest Hwy, Dallas, TX, USA

Join us for beautiful music, delicious East African food, and an opportunity to partner with the Funke family as they serve in Tanzania!

On Sunday, April 7 at 12:00 pm, join us in the Fellowship Hall of Northway for a special benefit concert to support the work of Next STEP Tanzania. Johnny Brown, Scott Ayers, and the Funke family will be performing, and delicious Tanzanian snacks will be provided.

Eric, Linda, Michael, and Julia Funke are trying to raise $12,000 before the end of May to cover the costs of plane tickets for their short-term mission trip in July. During this trip, they will bring
supplies and encouragement to current missionaries and projects, check in on ministries they have started and supported in the past, update the computer lab at Mwadui Lutheran Secondary School, hear about potential education projects that their nonprofit Next STEP Tanzania can support, catch up with Tanzanian friends, and attend the wedding of one of their dearest Tanzanian friends,
Omary Siraji.

If you are unable to attend the concert and would still like to donate, there are currently four ways to donate to their ministry…

With gratitude,
Eric, Linda, Michael, and Julia Funke
