Lansing is mourning the loss of one of its leading clergymen.
Bishop David Maxwell, the former head of the city of Lansing’s Office of Faith-Based Initiatives, has died.
According to a post made at 4:11 pm Thursday on the Bishop David W. Maxwell Ministries Facebook page:
“With great sorrow, we announce the earthly transition of our dear Apostle, the Honorable David W. Maxwell. Let us remain vigilant in prayer for the entire Maxwell family, all of his three church families, along with all those who have been touched by the life of this dedicated servant of God.”
Maxwell was a native of Flint, but as a young adult, he made the move to Lansing. And along with it, made a lifelong commitment to serve this community and his God.
He directed the city’s office of Faith-Based Initiatives during two mayoral administrations. At the time of his death, Maxwell was serving as Pastor of Eliezer Temple church in South Lansing. He also headed David Maxwell Ministries on Facebook.
Funeral arraignments are pending. David Maxwell was 66 years old.
