Commissioner Floyd Tidd has been appointed as territorial commander, while Commissioner Tracey Tidd will take up the role of territorial president of women’s ministries, replacing Commissioner Susan McMillan, who currently serves in both roles. They begin their new roles on October 1.
"We are grateful for the excellent service Commissioner Susan has given as territorial commander and territorial president of women’s ministries in the Canada and Bermuda Territory," says Colonel Edward Hill, chief secretary, Canada and Bermuda Territory.
Although concluding her service in these roles, Commissioner McMillan will take up new appointment responsibilities with the business section of IHQ, while being based in Canada.
Though originally from Canada, Commissioners Tidd have been serving in Australia since 2013.
“We are grateful for the years that we have been privileged to serve in Australia and see God accomplish more than we could ever ask or have imagined,” the Tidds told Others magazine.
“We look forward to the opportunity to serve in our home territory and anticipate all that God has in mind to do in and through us in the new appointment. We are also looking forward to being closer to our family once again after our six years in Australia.”
During their time in Australia, Commissioners Tidd served as leaders of the then-Australia Southern Territory, before being appointed as national leaders to oversee the merger of the Australia Eastern and Australia Southern territories into one Australia Territory. That process came to its climax in December last year when the new Australia Territory was officially launched, with the Tidds becoming its first territorial leaders.
"I know you will join me in praying God's richest blessing upon our colleagues as they prepare to assume their new appointment responsibilities," says Colonel Hill.
