Review for Novo Ministries Inc, Oklahoma City, OK, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've worked with a number of children's ministries and outreaches in the last 15 years. When this ministry was introduced, I was somewhat hesitant to get involved. I didn't know much about the ministry and I have very high expectations of children's programs. They invited me to observe and after seeing only one program, I knew I wanted to be involved. I volunteered for a school year, working at 4 different clubs during that time. They made me feel very useful, though they had a great team in place already. I was able to work behind the scenes, teach a small group, build relationships with the children, and teach in the large group presentation. I loved Novo's vision for the community and their determination to present excellent, high quality work. In fact, I loved it so much that when they offered me a position, I made a career change and came to work with them full time.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

As a volunteer, I loved watching the other volunteers interact with the children. The relationships that were built, the character lessons that were taught, and the compassion that was shown to the children affected the children deeply.

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

very helpful and encouraging. They wanted me to participate to the level I was willing and able to participate. They were and are dedicated to excellence in presentation and sincerity when working with the children.
