Mikey Icenhower was born in a small town in West Virginia to a family with strong Christian values. At an early age, he accepted Christ through the Awana program at his grandparent’schurch.
When he was 6 years old, his family moved to Montgomery County, where he remained active in his church youth group as a regular attender, serving on the student leadership council, and mentoring younger students. Mikey attended Watkins Mill High School where he played football, baseball, and volleyball. He assisted in starting a FCA huddle during his Jr. year.
After graduation, Mikey attended Shepherd University where he majored in Recreation & Leisure studies with a concentration in Athletic Coaching. While at Shepherd, Mikey worked with the football team as a member of the support staff. It was while working with the team that he was re-introduced to FCA and the affect it was having on the Shepherd campus. Seeing the athlete’s post-practice prayer circles, hearing the testimonies of the players, and watching the athlete’s sharing their faiththrough their service, reemphasized to Mikey the importance of utilizing the sports platform to witness to those around campus. This was something he began to develop a growing passion for. During his final year of college, Mikey began to look for ways he could share his faith through his love of sports. FCA has provided that opportunity and he is excited to see what God has in store for Montgomery County through FCA.
