Micah Armstrong, also known as Brother Micah, is a campus sidewalk preacher.[1] He began his campus ministries full time in 2006, however he visited campuses in his spare time as early as 2004,[2] with visits also possibly occurring as early as the mid-1990s.[3] Armstrong travels with his wife Elizabeth preaching in circuits mostly in the eastern and southern parts of the United States.[1][4][5] Armstrong uses outrageous statements to spark heated discussions. According to Jay Reeves of the Associated Press, Armstrong "holds a near mythic status on college campuses across the eastern United States".[1]
