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.
Novo Ministries reaches at-risk children, between the ages 4 to 12, of all ethnicities who live in under-resourced, urban communities within the greater Oklahoma City area. Many of these children live in poverty-stricken, crime-ridden neighborhoods, and are surrounded by destructive lifestyle choices, and inundated with the message of hopelessness.
Through 4 key areas, Novo is:
Creating awareness of the needs and realities of the inner city through events, presentations and social media.
Equipping mentors to effectively reach inner-city children, families and communities through our Novo Urban Awareness Training and Novo Volunteer Training.
Resourcing partners through developing curriculum as well as materials and support.
Mobilizing churches and volunteers to be involved in inner-city children’s lives through after-school Novo Programs.
