Pastor & Staff

  • Andrew Cheung

    Senior Pastor

    Andrew grew up in Vancouver, Canada and studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of British Columbia before working as an Operations Analyst and Project Coordinator in the airline industry. He completed a Master of Divinity at Regent College and graduated from the Arrow Leadership program. Prior to arriving at Washington Community Fellowship, Andrew most recently served as a Site Pastor at Tenth Church, a bustling multi-cultural, city-center church in Vancouver.  A constant learner, he enjoys conversations with almost anyone about almost anything. Most of all, he loves to look for glimmers of God’s grace at work in the lives of people.


    Andrew and his wife Julia, a writer and communications professional, are often seen cruising on their bikes enjoying the sights and cuisines of DC with their children, Ashley and Evan. At home Andrew enjoys being a big kid with his kids and foster children in the past. Together as a family, they are often working on “redemption projects.” Ask them about those they have on the go.


  • Samantha Bohall

    Coordinator of Children's Nurture

    Sam was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. She moved to the north shore of Boston to earn degrees in Biology and Secondary Education at Gordon College, where her love affair with the cool ocean breezes and rocky summits of New England began. Sam's passion for experiential education has brought her in and out of the classroom in several countries, into nannying with little ones, touring abroad with high schoolers, and leading youth of all ages up mountains and down rivers.


    Since relocating to the DMV two years ago, Sam delights in discovering new places and things to learn about the area. She loves working with WCF children; getting to glimpse the world through the wonder and curiosity of a child's eyes is an utterly magical privilege. It doesn't get better than when these moments include pointing a child towards Jesus.

  • Les Graber
    Building Administrator

    Les has been a member at WCF for 28 years. He was born and raised on a hog farm in Michigan, and is a general contractor licensed in DC. He loves caring for the building and making it available for use in the community, and values being a good neighbor at 9th and Maryland. He and his wife Kristal have two adult children, Nathan and Naomi. Les enjoys running, biking, refereeing soccer, and attending DC United soccer and Nationals baseball games. 

  • Russell Edgerton
