Daniel Geil

Co-Youth Minister 2024


Hi! My name is Daniel Geil. I am a rising sophomore at Samford University in Birmingham, AL with a major in Health Sciences. I have grown up both in North Carolina and Georgia and have been blessed to come to Topsail Beach almost every summer I can remember. During the school year, I love hiking, being with my friends, and playing any intramural sport that comes my way. During the summer you can usually find me hanging on a sandbar or bodysurfing!
Growing up as the son of a pastor and surrounded by the body of Christ, I have found how important it is to have a Christian community to build my own faith upon. I believe having mature and older Christian examples to look up to, learn from, and relate to are critical to growth for young Christians. Coming to Topsail Beach and Emma Anderson Memorial Chapel as I’ve grown up has shown me that a community of believers, even as young as elementary kids, can truly impact my life and others. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to disciple and lead my younger brothers and sisters in Christ this summer!

My favorite verse comes from Psalm 27:1“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
