Novo exists to break cycles of destruction, create hope, and instill a sense of purpose through life-changing mentoring relationships with inner-city boys and girls.
Novo Bible Clubs are a great opportunity to invest in boys and girls from the inner-city. These programs are a time for building relationships with the children, mentoring them, having fun, and sharing the life-changing message of Jesus Christ with kids who may have never heard it. They meet once a week at a variety of locations across the greater Oklahoma City area and are a commitment of approximately one to four hours per week, depending on the role you fill.
Our program sites include public elementary schools, community centers, housing projects, and apartment complexes — sites located less than 2,000 feet from where the children live or attend school. All ethnicities are represented on our enrollment lists: Latino, Caucasian, Native American, African American, and Asian American.
Activities at a typical Novo Bible Club include two small group teaching times, where the children will learn a memory verse, play games, make crafts, eat snacks, and build relationships with their peers and leader.
During the large group session in the middle of Novo Bible Club, the boys and girls get to play a fun game, sing songs, hear interactive Bible stories, listen to testimonies from their leaders, and are challenged to apply Biblical truths to their everyday lives.
