About Spirit Alive

About Our Directors


Pastor Roma and Anita have enjoyed over fifteen years of full-time pastoral work in the city of Thunder Bay. Both grew up in the Thunder Bay area and attended Lakehead University. Roma earned a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and an Honours Social Work Degree. Later he attended the University of Manitoba, receiving a Masters Degree, specializing in Administration and Management in Social Work. Anita graduated with a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education.



In August 2008, Pastor Roma Fisher received the privilege of carrying on the leadership of Spirit Alive, a First Nations focused television ministry. After 20 years, Ross Maracle, the pioneer and host of this broadcast retired from this portfolio to pursue other endeavors. The Spirit Alive headquarters were relocated to Thunder Bay and production of programs began for air in September of 2008.  This ministry celebrated its official launch from Thunder Bay on October 24 during the Word of Faith Conference.



The vision of Spirit Alive has always been “a National Native Voice of Hope.” We want to remain true to this vision, offering Hope, Help and Healing to our viewers. We plan to inspire vision, impart truth, instill hope, and motivate change through our various guests, through relevant teachings, prayer, music and discussions. We will offer products and resources to help our viewers grow spiritually as well as monthly newsletters.  In addition to the current national networks, we endeavour to target Northwestern Ontario by airing the broadcasts through our local networks.
