Winnipeg, MAN. — Dave Funk of Steinbach Mennonite Church has made it a personal project to take fellow church members on a monthly tour of Mennonite Church Canada and Mennonite Church Manitoba. He's pledged to do this for one year, or until the sign-up sheet is empty. "We need to strengthen our connections," said Funk during his second visit on Feb. 17. The tour groups meet staff, and "See the faces of the people we get those emails from," said Daniela Hildebrand, Office Administrator for Steinbach MC. In addition to learning about ministry programs, groups visit the Resource Centre and the Mennonite Heritage Centre and Art Gallery. Over morning coffee, the guests heard from staff that such visits are humbling, encouraging, and inspiring.
