In acknowledgement of her extensive work in the apostolic, she has been called "the greatest apostle in the modern church." A graduate of Apostolic University in Philosophy, Theology, Divinity, Religion/Comparative Religion, and also of Apostolic University Seminary, Dr. Marino's approach to preaching, teaching, Spiritual matters, and Scriptural education have touched a generation looking for leadership, connection, and understanding in our modern times.

Dr. Marino has been in ministry since 1998 and founded Apostolic Fellowship International Ministries in 2004. She was ordained as a pastor in 2002 and as an apostle in 2010. Her fellowship encompasses twenty-two churches and ministries worldwide, and thousands of friends, and includes the work of Sanctuary International Fellowship Tabernacle - SIFT, a movement dedicated to leading people to God without politics, where she emphasizes relationship, acceptance, experience, and service. In covering, her emphasis is on the unique development of each leader to become all God has for them to be in their specific gifting and ministries. She has preached and taught throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and in Europe. Affectionately nicknamed "the Spitfire," she is best-known for her work in the apostolic, educational efforts, to educate the Body of Christ, her instruction for church leaders, her work in the study of gender and human sexuality, and her work in women's ministry through the study of Female Apologetics, established and first taught by Dr. Marino herself. She has spent over twenty years in advocacy, education, and work for and with minority communities, including women, African-Americans, Latinos, and the LGBT community. In church settings, Apostle’s vision is about the church now, about looking forward rather than at “old school” church understandings, and about becoming “all things to all people,” that some may be saved.
