In 2002 in South Africa, Tony and Emiliana Palmer founded the Ark Community. The community was based on a small group of committed friends from many different churches and denominations united by a common commitment to Christ and His purposes. Discipleship and personal transformation are at the heart of the community.

Tony is an ordained Minister, ordained by the Anglican/Episcopal Church, within the CEEC (Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches). Tony is trained as a Medical Underwriter (Med. Dip. 1987), with further specialized studies in HIV/AIDS management.

He has also completed a short course in Biblical Archaeology and Biblical Studies (UNISA University, RSA), has a Masters Degree in Philosophy, “College of Theology” (St. Alcuin’s Seminary, USA), and has an English Teachers Certificate from Cambridge University, UK (CELTA).
