Port Elizabeth elects the Revd Dr Eddie Daniels as bishop
An Elective Assembly of the Diocese of Port Elizabeth has elected the Revd Dr Eddie Daniels, Rector of St Margaret’s Church in Summerstrand (left), as the next Bishop of Port Elizabeth.
Dr Daniels was ordained as priest by the then Bishop Desmond Tutu in Johannesburg in 1985. After serving in that diocese for six years, he took up a post as lecturer in the former St Paul’s College in Grahamstown for two years.
He has served in parishes in the Diocese of Port Elizabeth for the past 25 years.
He holds a Diploma in Theology from St Paul’s, a BA degree and a Master of Education degree (both from Wits University), and a Doctor of Education degree from Nelson Mandela University.
He is married to Nicky and the couple has one son, Joshua. God willing, he will be consecrated as bishop on February 23 next year. He will succeed the Right Revd Bethlehem Nopece, who retired earlier this year.
