I became familiar with Novo when my daughter started working there. I am amazed at the hearts Of God that the employees have & the love they have for all the kids. I may not leave close enough to volunteer but I pray my donations further His kingdoms work.
Novo truly loves children. From the top down you can see and hear the passion and joy that the leaders and other volunteers have for this ministry, the children and our community. We are so blessed to have this organization and the people involved with it to minister to so many children in our metro area that might be forgotten or ignored.
I've have had the honor to partner with novo ministries both financially and serving. What impresses me the most is how organized and prepared they are. This really helps out the volunteers as well as maximizing the time to share the love of Jesus with the kids. The bible is the foundation of their teaching and they share the gospel in a way that all ages can understand. Novo Ministry leaders and volunteers serve God with humility and grace. They glorify God, by interacting with the children with love. Their greatest joy is seeing God's work at hand when children make the decision to put their trust in God and follow him. God definitely uses novo ministries to advance the gospel, build His kingdom, and bring glory to his name -David Satre
Novo Ministries is one of the best non-profits I've worked with. Of the organizations we give to monthly, this is the only one that gives regular updates that includes CURRENT information and thanks you for what you ARE giving. We've received mailings, phone calls, emails...not asking for more money or sending the same pictures over and over, just saying thank you for what we're doing now. Because of their mission, methods, and how they treat their donors, this is the FIRST organization I think of when I have extra to give and the place I encourage others to give to.
About five years ago a church I was attending had a presentation regarding NOVO ministries. I was impressed with the concept of after school activities made available to children that might otherwise find themselves involved in activities that may prove harmful to themselves or others around them. The bonus was that these after school activities offered would present the Gospel! I personally knew some of the volunteers and they would share stories of children running with excitement to participate in the activities provided to them. Stories were told of how the children made a positive impact in the volunteers' lives as well. When approached with an invitation to partner with NOVO ministries by giving a donation, I gladly accepted. I have been made aware of children being turned away as a result of a lack of funding to open more activity sites, or a lack of volunteers. My prayer is that the Lord our God will touch the hearts of all those he will to respond to the call to aid NOVO ministries in presenting the Gospel to all who desire to come to the activities they make available.
Wonderful charity that gives inner city children a place to learn about their faith while in a safe and encouraging setting.
I became a monthly donor for Novo Ministries after a personal visit to their main office. Their helpful staff is passionate about their cause. They're dedicated to the mission of loving urban kids and equipping them with the tools they need for a thriving life. Their Bible clubs provide an opportunity for students to learn, socialize, and ask faith questions in a safe environment. If you're interested in learning more, don't hesitate to contact them. Their staff and their volunteers are very personable.
I love this ministry! Novo benefits so many inner city children of OKC. The feeling of love and giving is alive here. I'm so glad to have toured their facility , it really gave me a feel for the passion and dedication of everyone involved! I hope you will get involved in this ministry too:)
As a ministry, they do a great job taking care of their staff's needs, providing space and opportunity to do the behind the scenes work necessary before going out to work with the children. It has been good to see how they use finances and donations to better equip their leadership team in order to lead the volunteer groups successfully.
I went through Novo training. I've read through their literature. I've met with a number of their directors and club leaders. I've spoken with the members of our church who work with the local Novo club. The program and persons behind it are highly committed to sharing the gospel with children. The clubs are in settings to reach many unchurched children. I've been a donor ever since I first learned about Novo 3 years ago. I intend to contue to support them.
