Andrew Mann: Graffiti 2 in Mott Haven, Bronx

Andrew Mann is pastor and director of Graffiti 2 Community Ministries in the Bronx. Since Mann opened the church and community center doors in 2005, he has seen tremendous growth and influence in Mott Haven.

When Mann planted the church he was the sole staff member. Now it has grown into a beloved part of the community, and includes several full-time staff members. The staff all relocated to the area from other parts of the U.S. after serving short-term alongside Mann. Together they host daily after-school programs and tutoring for more than 60 children and teenagers, a weekly fellowship meal and Bible study every Thursday, monthly life skill classes, mentoring programs for teenagers, special outreach events and camps and weekly Sunday services, all designed to reach the families of Mott Haven for Christ.
