Our Staff

Rev. Geoffrey Van Dragt
Geoff grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he did his undergrad at Calvin College. After college, he spent several years in Latin America before returning to Michigan to attend seminary where he met and married Ashley. Together they served as pastors at a chapel in Ann Arbor before moving to Seattle to plant GCF. Geoff loves engaging ideas and people and so campus ministry is a wonderful fit. When he’s not working, he spends his time playing with his son and tending his ducks, chickens and garden.

Rev. Ashley Van Dragt
After leaving for nine years to the midwest for undergraduate studies, seminary, and a pastoring job in Ann Arbor, Ashley returned to her home state of WA, along with her husband Geoff, to plant GCF. She loves students, faculty, Jesus, reading, writing and long conversations about things that matter. They have two-year-old and another one baby on the way.

Ministry Coordinator
Laurel Grimm
Laurel recently moved back to the Pacific Northwest after graduating from Carleton College and the Culinary Institute of America. She splits the rest of her time between cooking in a busy cafe, writing cooking lessons for middle schoolers, studying nonprofit management, and attempting crossword puzzles (always in pen). Laurel first became involved with GCF through her fiance, Bill, a masters student at UW, and is excited to serve this group in new ways.
