Meet Our Staff
PATRICK BAEZ - INTERIM DIRECTOR
Patrick first became involved with Graffiti on a mission trip with his home church, First Baptist Church Georgetown Texas. After spending much of his adulthood in international and short-term missions, he knew “Missions” would always be a passion of his. Now, living in Manhattan with his wife Kelsie, he has returned to Graffiti to help as the Missions Director and the Youth Director at Graffiti 1 in Manhattan. Patrick enjoys eating cupcakes, tacos, and cheesecake.
HANNAH CLARK- CHILDREN'S DIRECTOR
After receiving her undergrad from Campbellsville University, Kentucky, with a Bachelor's of Science in Sociology, Hannah came to New York City as a summer missionary. Falling in love with the people of Brownsville, especially the children, she accepted the calling to work at Graffiti 3 Ministries full time.
Having grown up in six states and three countries, needs based ministry is not new to her. She has experience starting and leading youth groups, teaching in dozens of Vacation Bible Schools, and leading mission groups overseas. She is most excited when singing songs with kids or meeting new people in the neighborhood.
