Marchon Hamilton II

Campus

Service Area: Campus Ambassadors

Ministry Focus

In 2011, while attending graduate school, Marchon joined Campus Ambassadors, a collegiate ministry, at the University at Buffalo.

In 2014 he was officially appointed as a Campus Minister with Campus Ambassadors. When left with the question of what his real goal in life is, he confidently states, “My mission is to empower a fearless (internet) generation by leading people into the presence of God. My desire is to see many souls saved, healed, delivered, and restored through the Gospel of Jesus Christ—using my music, ministry and life story as a vehicle.”

His desire is to serve generations of youth and young adults with excellence.

Marchon’s developmental stages as a worshiper and choir director began in his local church. He continued to cultivate his gifting and anointing for music at his home church, Abundant Life in Christ Ministries, where he currently serves in ministry on the West side of Buffalo, New
York.

Marchon has also been blessed with many opportunities to share his gift all around the country. As a teenager, he was given the honor of singing for the National Black Caucus in Albany, New York (2001-2002) among New York State’s most prominent dignitaries. In addition, he has made numerous appearances in the city of Buffalo and abroad.

Not only has he excelled in music, he has also staked his claim in the world of academics. In 2006, Marchon earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Management at Oral Roberts University.

Among other accomplishments he earned a position on the Gamma Beta Phi Honor Society (2003), the National Dean’s List (2004) and he became a Collegiate All-American Scholar (2004). He also served in school administration as a Resident Advisor for the NCAA Division 1 ORU Eagles basketball team (2004-2005).

In 2012, Marchon completed his Master of Science in Higher Education Administration from Canisius College in Buffalo, New York.

During his college career he was afforded many opportunities to share his ministry of music. In 2002, Marchon began singing as a part of the ORU Worship department. It was here that he would significantly expand his musical boundaries and learn the essence of true worship.

The progression of his ORU career began with touring as a member of Souls A’ Fire, the university’s Gospel choir (2003 & 2004) and singing and traveling as a cast member on the nationally televised show “The Hour of Healing” (2004) —an evangelistic show by school Chancellor Oral Roberts. Soon after much prayer, exposure, and intense tutelage, in 2005, he became the Director of Souls A’ Fire choir and went on to serve as a producer/writer/arranger for the Souls A’ Fire album project released in 2007.

God has surely called him to do a great work in youth and music ministry as a minister, psalmist, artist, and producer.

In 2010, he was commissioned to be ordained into the ministry as an elder of the church. He currently serves as a Youth Advocate/Counselor, helping youth to successfully complete high school, find employment, and advance into higher education.
