Come on in!

We are excited to announce that our website has now gone live at! Co-founded by Mark Catlin and Dustin Valerius, the Novum Institute is a theological think tank empowering the church to live a new story in the academy, arts, and marketplace. We have designed the website to gather the Novumi Community, the group of men and women called and committed to building, sustaining, and participating in the Novum Institute as an act of worship to God.

This blog serves the Novumi Community by providing . . .

  • Inspiration to live a new story in the academy, arts, and marketplace
  • Testimonies from those whom we have served
  • Updates on refining strategy and goals
  • Updates on product development and implementation
  • Updates on fundraising goals and need


As we build this new organization, we would love for you to support us in the following ways as you are able and God calls you to do so . . .

  • Pray!
  • Give financially (click here to give online)
  • Spread the word about Novum

We are genuinely interested in serving you, hearing from you, and engaging in dialogue with you. So, please like and comment freely here on the blog. You can also like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Instagram @novuminstitute.

We look forward to hearing from you!
