Bishop Sedgwick Daniels Death – Milwaukee, Wisconsin christian families are mourning the death of Bishop Sedgwick Daniels who passed away tragically. Bishop Sedgwick Daniels died Sunday after a medical emergency. The COGIC General Board Member and Pastor of the Holy Redeemer COGIC was pronounced dead surrounded by his family and friends.
Bishop and preacher Sedgwick Daniels was born on August 16, 1959, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, as the second youngest of eight children to John and Kathleen Daniels. He was appointed as a City of Milwaukee Plan Commissioner and the first Protestant to serve on the board of the Catholic Central City Schools.
Daniels collaborated with Antonio Riley and the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority on various projects, including the development of a senior housing complex and the promotion of Milwaukee home ownership.
Bishop Gilbert E. Patterson and the Church of God in Christ General Board promoted Daniels to the position of Bishop in 2001. Daniels’ jurisdiction included around 105 Institutional Church of God congregations in Wisconsin and northern Illinois. During Daniels’ term as Bishop, his own church, Holy Redeemer Institutional Church of God in Christ, grew into a multi-million dollar organization that served the Milwaukee community’s educational and social service requirements.
The Bush Administration began holding faith-based group conferences in 2002. President Bush and David Kuo, the Office of Faith-Based Initiatives’ then-deputy director, paid a visit to Daniels’ Holy Redeemer Church. Daniels, a political independent and close friend of Reverend Jesse Louis Jackson, Sr., made a controversial endorsement of George W. Bush two years later, partly on the basis of his faith-based program. Until his death, Daniels was the Pastor of Milwaukee’s Holy Redeemer Institutional Church of God in Christ.
