Director of Communication & Advancement
Mike Puckett, Executive Director
Most folks refer to Mike as “Puck” for short. He’s an ASU grad and has a history with BCM. He started serving with BCM as an Intern back in 2008 and after moving away to Ohio to start campus ministries at a couple of major state universities, God brought him back to Boone to lead ASU BCM. Puck grew up in Charlotte, lived in Akron, OH for a while, but Boone is home for him, and it’s also where he encountered Jesus. Puck is a fairly laid back guy who loves a good book and hot cup of independent, fair trade coffee. And to be clear, coffee is meant to be black – the way God intended it. Puck loves to see Jesus transform the lives of college students.
Puck is married to Kelly, who is also an ASU grad, and was heavily involved in BCM as a student. They have a daughter named Emily, who was born in January 2014.
As Executive Director, Puck is responsible for articulating the vision of the ministry, developing and equipping leaders, and building relationships with local church pastors.
Anna Kilby, Director of Communication & Advancement
Anna Kilby makes Duke Power sub-stations jealous of her level of energy. Seriously, her excitement is electrifiying. And she loves her job working with students!
Anna spent most of her formative years in the Philippines. Her parents moved around as missionaries there. And that early exposure to people of other cultures made its mark until, after a rocky few years, Anna came full circle. She started serving at BCM in May of 2012, leaving behind a career in social work. Anna graduated from App with a degree in Communications, so serving at BCM is like a homecoming of sorts for her.
She enjoys traveling, going to movies, shopping for clothes (especially at Lucky Penny), and cheering on the Appalachian Rollergirls. But it won’t take long for anyone to figure out that she loves her some Scott. That’s her husband. Throw him in the mix with any of those things she likes to do, and she’s a happy girl. She and Scott have two daughters, Milly and Rivers who love college students as much as they do!
As Director of Advancement, Anna is responsible for telling the BCM story to local churches and supporters.
Scott Kilby, Campus Missionary – ASU
Scott first came to Boone in 2001 as an undergrad at Appalachian State and hasn’t left since. He graduated from App State with a marketing degree and worked at Farm Bureau Insurance for 9 years before coming on staff at BCM. Scott’s first day on campus was June 13, 2016 and he hasn’t looked back since.
Scott grew up in the metropolis of Boomer, NC (basically Wilkesboro) with his parents, sister, and twin brother. His twin, Brent, is also an App alum. You may do a double take if you bump into him. Scott is married to Anna (one tab over) who also serves at Baptist Campus Ministry. They have two daughters, Milly and Rivers.
Scott is a campus missionary to App State for BCM. He spends his time not only engaging those far from God, but also training and equipping BCM students to be disciples and followers of Christ.
