Micah Murphy

A cradle Catholic from Omaha, Nebraska, Micah’s work in Catholic New Media began when he was still a teenager. After spending 9 years in Catholic school, he entered public high school to find himself challenged in his faith by his non-Catholic classmates. Seeking the truth, Micah scoured his parents’ Catechism, read Patrick Madrid and Catholic Answers, and learned the faith by debating it through online apologetics. At the same time, he began to appreciate the patrimony of the faith as he studied Latin.

Excited to serve the Lord, Micah became a seminarian for the Archdiocese of Omaha. While studying at Conception Seminary College, he grew in his love of Catholic tradition through his exposure to monastic life and study of Biblical Greek. He also grew in his experience of Catholic New Media with the online apostolate Phatmass. Discerning a call to marriage, he left for a very fruitful year getting acquainted as a student with the work of FOCUS at the University of Nebraska, which inspired him to make evangelization his life’s work. After transferring to Franciscan University of Steubenville, Micah graduated in 2007 with a BA in Theology & Catechetics (with a Latin minor).

Micah married his wife, Jennie, in 2007, and they have four children. They live in Shreveport, Louisiana, where Micah teaches Scripture at Loyola College Prep.
