You may have heard it, the saying often attributed to pastor and author Tim Keller, about why God loves the city more than he does the country. The country has more trees than people.

[Video] Graffiti Gospel


Video by Joel Hager / TEAM

TEAM places a high value on storytelling. We love to inspire and educate the church by offering peeks into what God is doing around the world. Occasionally, we even publish stories that have only a roundabout connection to TEAM, simply because we feel they are unique or noteworthy enough to tell. When good things are happening in the kingdom of God, we are happy to share them!

This video highlights the budding Christian graffiti scene in Adelaide, Australia. Josh Routley, one of the artists interviewed in the video, is a student at a TEAM-partnered college. Josh and others like him are trying to bring hope into the often brooding and anger-filled culture of street art.

Check out the video in HD here. You can also read more about Australian street art in the accompanying story from Horizons, TEAM’s magazine.

Learn more about what TEAM is up to in Australia and how you can get involved there.
