BUOY Leadership Team

Back Row: Phil, Gow
Front Row: Laura, Jamie, Kellie, Cherith

We’re here to draw students into a relationship with Christ through mentorship, discipleship, teaching the Bible, fun & fellowship.

We meet Sunday nights 5-7pm in the Buoy Room.  We rotate week to week between Buoy and Buoy Games.

Buoy =  Worship, a Biblical challenge, small group time & prayer.

Buoy Games =  Group game time to build community then split into small groups.

Buoy Events = (2-3 times each semester) provides opportunity to invite friends to Buoy and to have more time sharing life and building friendships.

Buoy Goals

– To be a safe and Holy place while being safe and Holy people- teaching respect.

– To glorify God and seek to live a life that is beyond reproach (Titus 2:7-8)

– To teach our students that God is real, loves us and designed each of us in His image with purpose.


– To teach that in order to be free in him, we need to respond to Jesus.

– To teach the importance of committing time each week to meet together, grow together, laugh together and to safe guard consistent CHRIST CENTERED fellowship on a weekly basis.

–  To reach out to the families of our students that are not yet connected to the body of Christ.

Buoy Verse 2017:  
…as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.  Joshua 24:15b

Buoy is solid because of the commitment of our incredible Buoy Leader Team and the love and support of our church family at Anchor.

Buoy Leaders:  Jamie Leslie, Cherith Anderson, Kellie Strong, Phil Molitor, Gow Gowan & Laura Gowan.

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
