The Salvation Army International Headquarters (IHQ) has announced that Commissioners Floyd and Tracey Tidd will return home to assume leadership of the Canada and Bermuda Territory.

Commissioner Floyd Tidd has been appointed as Territorial Commander, replacing Commissioner Susan McMillan, while Commissioner Tracey Tidd will take up the role of Territorial President of Women’s Ministries. They begin their new roles on 1 October.

They have been waiting on confirmation of their new appointments since IHQ announced in early March that they would be concluding their time in Australia, with Commissioners Robert and Janine Donaldson to take on leadership of the new Australia Territory.

“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,” said the Tidds.

“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.”

Commissioners Floyd and Tracey Tidd arrived in Melbourne from Canada in June 2013, to lead the then-Australia Southern Territory; Floyd as Territorial Commander and Tracey as President of Women’s Ministries.

After almost three years as Southern Territory leaders, the Tidds were 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.

“While there’s obviously a personal delight to be returning home to Canada, it is tempered by a sadness we feel at having to leave Australia and the many, many friends we have made here,” said the Tidds.

“Our time here has far exceeded any of our expectations, and we will continue to take a keen interest in the development of the new Australia Territory as Salvos live, love and fight, alongside others, to transform Australia one life at a time, with the love of Jesus.”  

Others will feature an interview with the Tidds in the June issue of the magazine. The interview will also be filmed and made available to watch online.
