Serve in the City

Mission Teams are an integral part of Graffiti being able to help love, serve the unserved, and invite the uninvited. We strive to create long-lasting relationships with teams who come year after year to influence hearts for Christ in the Metro New York City area. There are a variety of ways to utilize your God-given gifts through our programs and ministry centers.

With over 30 years experience in inner-city ministry we have developed guidelines to make sure that both the team and Graffiti have a safe and productive relationship. If the mission team you are interested in bringing does not meet the initial guidelines below, we regret we cannot facilitate the group and encourage you to seek service opportunities in the NYC area by contacting the MNYBA.

Team Guidelines

All team members must be 18 years of age or older. Please visit the MNYBA link above if you have team members under the age of 18. This includes if you want to bring your own children, as we are not able to provide child care during your mission trip.

There must be at least one adult over the age of 25 accompanying the team.

The best team size is between 5 and 15 people. It is difficult for us to accommodate groups over 15 people except at special pre-coordinated events.

Graffiti cannot help facilitate travel or housing, nor can we host mission teams overnight on site. We can refer you to Baptist housing options but are unable to guarantee they will be able to accommodate you. To best estimate private accommodations for your team please access Trip Adviser or another travel website. We cannot personally recommend any private facilities and ask that you utilize user reviews for that establishment to make the best decision for your situation.
