Bruce Tidwell was called as the Bishop of the Brainerd congregation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 3067 Ooltewah Ringgold Road in Ooltewah.

Mr. Tidwell will serve as the ecclesiastical leader of the Brainerd congregation for a period of about five years without pay. He has served in many different positions in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, all without pay or application.

"He has served faithfully in every call he has been given, and will no doubt do the same as Bishop of the Brainerd congregation," officials said.

Bishop Tidwell, as his congregation calls him, married Dana Wimpy Tidwell, a native of the Chattanooga Valley area.
They have been “most happily married” for over 30 years. They currently reside in Ringgold. They have four children: Lacey (Brandon) Jones of Soddy Daisy; Lauren (Nate) Pippin of Dayton, Tn.; Taylor (Erin) Tidwell in Provo, Ut. attending school at Brigham Young University; and Tanner Tidwell who is serving a church mission in the Ogden, Ut. mission.

He has worked for SunTrust Bank since coming to the Chattanooga area in 1997. He has been involved in commercial real estate lending the last 25 years of his career. His current job is senior vice president, Commercial Real Estate Credit Officer for Private Wealth Management.

He loves reading, woodworking, and being with his children and grandchildren. He also loves working with the children and youth of his congregation.

The Brainerd congregation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints meets at 9 a.m. every Sunday morning and all are invited to worship the Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ with them, officials said.
