Who We Are
The Renew Board
In 1998 David Palusky was faced with this question: “How can we present the Gospel to remote people and empower their native leaders to disciple their own tribes?” Drawing on his electrical engineering background, David created solar-powered audio/video systems for teaching groups both small and large without electricity or a cumbersome generator. The impact of these tools inspired David with his brother to begin Renew World Outreach, with the goal to equip God’s world-changers with continual advances in creative technology – helping to bring the Gospel to the “ends of the earth!
Brandon heard the Lord’s call to leave his career as a trial attorney and got plugged in with Renew. He started at Renew in 2012 overseeing Renew’s legal and information technology departments. As Renew’s Vice President and COO, Brandon draws on his legal experience to keep Renew running as a “tight ship” organizationally and operationally. With a passion for technology, efficiency, and the Word of God, Brandon is dedicated to ensuring that God’s people continue to have access to the most advanced, affordable, and reliable Gospel-advancing technology on the planet. He is licensed to practice law in Georgia where he earned his J.D. at the University of Georgia and his Bachelor’s degree from Georgia State University. Brandon lives in the metro-Atlanta area with his wife Jessica and their four children.
As an avid outdoorsman, Clay’s love for God’s creation helps him connect with the remotest people on a level few others are able. David met Clay many years ago on a trip to Renew’s Aurora property in the Amazon where he spent most of his time fixing toilets on the property. He truly exemplifies a servant’s heart in leadership. Clay prefers to keep his hands dirty, but when the Lord requests it, he is always willing to bring his talent and expertise in business and ministry operations management to the table. He studied Mechanical Engineering at Northern Arizona University and has owned or founded businesses and ministries over the years. Clay currently serves as Vice President and Secretary/Treasurer of Faith Comes by Hearing/Hosanna and is co-owner of Capstone Realty, Capstone Investment, and Beulah Retreat in his home state of New Mexico.
