Erik van Geel

Director of Dutch Outreach

Erik was the typical prodigal son. For thirty-five years he traveled many different roads in an attempt to find happiness and give meaning to his existence. But none of these roads led to a satisfactory destination. On the contrary; together they proved to form a disappointing maze in his search for purpose and significance. Erik’s lack of purpose of course went hand in hand with a lack of character; the fruits of a lacking worldview. In 2004, after he moved his family to the United States, a tragedy took place that changed his life forever. Today Erik is a new creation with purpose and hope for eternity.

Since 2005, Erik is the Director of Outreach for’s Dutch network of websites. He has translated over 1800 web articles about God, Jesus Christ, the Bible, worldview, science and many other topics, as well as two different Dutch editions of The Daily Bible®.

Erik has a PhD in structural engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology, and has been working for many years as a senior software developer in the American world of Information Technology.

AllAboutGOD Results: From May 2002 to December 2019, saw 362 million gospel presentations, with 2.8 million people indicating decisions for Jesus and 120 million discipleship engagements from every country in the world! We now see the majority of those who reach out to us, get connected with a local pastor, so they can grow to live like Jesus in a local Christian community. All praise be to God alone who grants us favor on the web and gives the increase!

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
