Marion was raised in Fort Mill, SC, and is a 2019 graduate of The Citadel. Midway through his sophomore year in college, he became a Christian through the ministry of Campus Outreach. A young believer at the time, Marion attended two Leadership Projects in order to grow in his faith where a desire for people to be saved grew exponentially. During his senior year, he interned in the Resource Office for Campus Outreach to further explore his desire to come on staff. Through this internship, he learned to use his God-given gifts in finance and administration to help further the gospel.
