Taylor Field pastors a church that welcomes about 100 people on Sundays to the same storefront location, after 25 years (see graffitichurch.org). Weekdays, Taylor frequently works with people some might label underachievers. He knows few influencers and has goals other than career advancement, a new church site, his books on the New York Times best-seller list, or a jam-packed speaking schedule. When he speaks, the groups are relatively small. Taylor serves with Graffiti Community Ministries in the Lower East Side in New York City.
Though Graffiti Community Ministries began with a few people in Lower Manhattan, it works to express God’s love in tangible ways for thousands each year, launching Graffiti 2 (South Bronx) and Graffiti 3 (Brooklyn). Serving, fostering, and supporting some 20 new churches, Graffiti partners with many other New York City ministries. Their commitment: to do the small things, to serve the unserved.
