Rev. Joel Vancil

At age 24, Pastor Joel is among the youngest pastors in the association. Ordained at age 21, he is excited to have been given an early start in the ministry. He moved to rural south Georgia in April, 2018, upon affirming his call to pastoral ministry.

Born into a farming family, his hobbies include gardening and plucking on his banjo.

Surprisingly, Double Heads is his second pastorate! Previously, Joel pastored a Southern Baptist church in his hometown of Sunfield, Illinois during a successful three year revitilization/replant process.

Currently, Joel pastors Double Heads while simultaneously attending Bible College at Brewton-Parker to complete his degree. He hopes to bring about a new perspective and fresh vision to DHBC as we continue to proclaim the timeless truths of the Gospel - the good news of Jesus Christ!
