Issues: Children & Youth

Location: 1700 NE 4th St Oklahoma City OK 73117 USA

Mission: Novo Ministries exists to break cycles of destruction, hopelessness, and purposelessness through the creation and cultivation of life-changing mentoring relationships with inner-city boys and girls.
Target demographics: At-risk children ages 4 - 12 in Oklahoma City's inner-city communities.
Geographic areas served: Oklahoma City
Programs: Novo Ministries seeks to connect passionate individuals, churches, and organizations with inner-city communities in the greater Oklahoma City area by helping facilitate weekly after-school programming in these communities. Regularly, the children of our Novo programs and the programs of our partners have the opportunity to build relationships with caring mentors who pour into their lives, share positive teaching, and who paint a picture of a reality that doesn’t have to end with jail, broken families, or gangs. We believe that the children and families in inner-city communities have many needs, but their greatest one is to experience hope and to find and fulfill the purpose for which they were created.

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.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

100% committed to bringing the gospel to children who not otherwise ever hear it.
