Thomas & Mary Palumbo
Tom and Mary Palumbo first became aware of Josiah Venture (JV) in 2016 when Dave Patty was teaching at Gull Lake Ministries in Michigan. In the course of his lesson and then a presentation of the Josiah Venture mission, they felt a prompting of the Holy Spirit to pray about being an active part in this movement.
After spending time at a JV Spring Conference in Malenovice, Czech in 2017, and traveling Europe to visit the JV facilities and see country leadership/team members in Slovakia and Poland in 2018, Tom and Mary started serving on JV’s Ambassador team (or A-team) in 2019— a group of dedicated individuals who serve part-time from America to advance the JV vision through special projects.
Tom is both a business owner and retired sales executive for a Hudsonville-based manufacturer of products for the global law enforcement markets. Mary is a dedicated homemaker. They have been married for 35 years and have 5 children and 7 grandchildren. During their life together, they have hosted and taught small care groups, hosted missionaries on furlough, and have served their church and community in numerous other support and leadership functions.
