The materials we received for VBS and our children’s program were unbelievable! The work that the team puts into all the details makes our job so much easier. I love how they empower us to use the tools to confidently share the Gospel with kiddos.

Novo Ministries is an amazing organization who works behind the scenes to empower the local church and after school ministries that already exist. They offer top class service and they are on top of everything they do. Then run like a well oiled machine.

I was a volunteer with Antioch Norman's summer program. All of the supplies and curriculum that we got from Novo was so helpful and made the work load easier and helped the entire program run smoothly!

I believe in the power of mentors. Novo Ministries of Oklahoma supplies deeply impactful mentorship to many youth in OKC who would otherwise be forgotten. I encourage you to learn more about their organization by visiting their website to make a difference in the lives of children.

I can’t say enough about Novo Ministries. Everyone I have met from Novo has put 100% of their hearts into helping families. I had the honor of attending a luncheon with them and got to see first hand how they help families. It is a beautiful thing. They make it easy to give monthly and I’m proud to do so. I look forward to receiving updates in the mail and seeing the smile on the kids faces. Thank you Heather Lester for the introduction to Novo.

Novo Ministries does not just love children! Novo ministries is passionate about children and providing experiences of love and compassion, a touch of grace in a child's weekly life, that lights the way in their often dark world of poverty and hunger. Connecting children with the eternal love of a Heavenly Father brings hope! They are facilitating the change of trajectory in the children's lives, their families', their communities', and their generation. I love investing in hope!

Novo Ministries is amazing! Their mission is to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the inner city children and families of the OKC metro area through Bible clubs and community involvement. I have had the privilege to volunteer and work with them in the past. I really enjoyed being a part of this ministry. I learned so much about myself and the love of Jesus while serving with Novo Ministries. For anyone that wants to impact children's lives for Christ, I highly recommend Novo Ministries.

Novo Ministries invests in children and truly makes a difference in their lives. Not only does Novo impact children directly, but they also provide training and resources to partners to be able to reach even more. They are definitely a positive influence on the children (and their families), teaching them they are valued, worthy of love and care, and giving them hope. They "walk their talk" and fulfill their mission daily.

They have been an awesome resource in getting our Bible Club going. They really do a great job of taking care of the administrative items that can be burdensome for me to do, which allows me to focus on what i'm better equipped to do.

Valerie has shown herself to be a great help in not just things directly related to Novo, but has been a good resource for things regarding my organization as well.

I worked with this ministry for a small amount of time when I was a young man and volunteered with them for some time afterwards. You would be hard pressed to find a more pure ministry that exists solely to proclaim the gospel to the lost as this one does.

I have known the Founder & COO for over 20 years, we were neighbors to her and her family. She comes from a family who held high standards to helping others as long as I have been acquainted to them. I have been a supporter of NOVO ministries as much as I can and I'm so proud to be a part of this organization that is making a positive difference in the lives of children in the greater OKC metro.
Good work NOVO and God bless each of you!!!!

Novo is a non profit I only recently found out about. However, seeing how much my own city can be affected by this ministry has been eye opening. We need caring adults to teach our children that they have value, they have worth, they have a purpose and that they are loved. I have heard story after story of how lives are being changed. Through the programs Novo provides children are being encouraged and get to spend time in a positive environment. They get to learn and be shown what love is- God’s love. There is good being done in our city- and it begins with giving our children hope for a future - it begins with a change of being told they are cared for and important- to be encouraged is something that be lasting. And showing Gods love is the goal. Novo is hope for our children.
