Apostle Dr. Lee Ann B. Marino

Presenting the world of "Counterculture Christianity" - faith with an edge - to showcase God's work in the midst of changing times.

Turning the World Upside Down...


Faith as a challenge

Faith challenges us. It exists to shake us up, make us wonder about life, and discover a bigger sense of reality. Faith confronts us: it makes us look at ourselves, the world around us, and ultimately find more than what we might see with the naked eye.

Hear us out

Whether you agree or disagree with the premise, all we ask is that you listen. You might think you've been told "where it's at" by well-meaning Christians in the past, but just what you might discover to learn they were well-meaning...but wrong.

Shaking things up

Our theme, "faith with an edge," indicates this ministry exists to turn things upside down. We want you to think about what you believe. Whether you're constructing, deconstructing, or reconstructing, we're here for your process.

Turn the world upside down with us!

Come along, listen, and see what we have to offer. You never know...you just might find you want to join in the revolution and turn the world upside down, too!

Counterculture Christianity

"Counterculture Christianity" presents viewpoints, ideas, and thoughts that often do not fall in line with what people associate as "mainline" Christian or church concepts. We are here to give voice to those who have been told their thoughts, feelings, study, and insights aren't "good enough" because they are different - especially when counterpoints are valid. Here, we present ideas that are worthy of your time, your attention, and yes, your belief.

In the book of Acts, the following statement was made about the early followers of Jesus: These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also." (Acts 17:6, KJV) In other words, Christian faith should challenge the world, turn the establishment upside down, and represent something beyond political and social aspirations. We are world changers. We are here. We are not going anywhere.

SPITFIRE APOSTOLIC MINISTRIES seeks to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and implement His powerful Kingdom, for all creation.

We believe such is accomplished as we affirm the gifts, abilities, and endowments of Kingdom leaders, through practical training, edification, and spiritual empowerment. By building upon our foundations of love, grace, covenant, renewal, service, and unity, we are able to create spiritual communities, churches, and ministries designed to thrive with God, growth, and grace.

It is our very heart to create apostolic community: where spirituality is a practical, applicable part of everyday life; to establish doctrinal foundation and apostolic leadership; to fellowship and engage as true family; to embody Christ-like character, as we let all humanity know the Kingdom of God is within, among, and around them as they are empowered through divine change, and turning toward the fullness of truth.

SPITFIRE APOSTOLIC MINISTRIES seeks to take the Gospel to the nations, reaching every nation with the saving power of Jesus Christ through work with church leadership and church members in the form of apostolic leadership, education, through television, radio, and the internet, through printed word, conferences, seminars and comprehensive education through the Ephesians 4:11 Missionary Society, through

Apostolic University, through our spiritual commitment in Sanctuary International Fellowship Tabernacle - SIFT, through the living witness of outreach to “whosoever,” especially those called to leadership, the LBGTQ+ community, women, inmates, outcasts, strangers, immigrants, the sick, and the hurting. Our vision is to stand as the hands and feet of Jesus Christ, empowering others through love, grace, covenant, renewal, service, and unity.
