NOVO Ministries is an Oklahoma 501 (c) 3 non-profit organizations that is making a life changing impact in the lives of underprivileged kids in OKC. Through their weekly Bible Clubs which are conducted at public elementary schools and local housing authority recreation centers, kids gather to enjoy participating in games, snacks and teaching times in both large and small group settings. NOVO's staff of employees and volunteers range in age from around 15-80 years and all enthusiastically pursue a common goal - to reach inner city boys and girls with life changing Biblical truth. Mentoring relationships are established between the kids who attend the Clubs and the staff and volunteers and it is sometimes hard to tell which group is receiving the most benefit as many of the volunteers have stated how much they feel privileged to spend time with these kids. Being a part of meeting someone else's need is totally awesome! The executive staff and key personal on the NOVO team provide outstanding, trustworthy leadership with and unwavering focus on being faithful to do what they say they will do. When the NOVO team commits to serve a community with regular weekly Bible Clubs, the kids never have to wonder if the NOVO team will be there on any given week. This consistent commitment and presence in the local communities has provided a haven for kids to run to because they know the NOVO team will be there and each kid in attendance knows they are loved by the staff and volunteers. I have served on the Board of Directors since the organizations was founded and count my involvement with NOVO ministries as one of the very best investments I can make with my personal time and money as the results from the efforts expended by NOVO Ministries are yielding returns way beyond anything I could have ever imagined. NOVO is truly making a difference - one child at a time.
