Timothy James K. Bass is serving as the branch president, or ecclesiastical leader, of the downtown Chattanooga congregation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 407 E. 5th Street. He has served since 2014 and will serve in that position for about five years, without pay.

He is employed full-time at The McCallie School, serving as one of three Athletic Trainers as well as Dorm Advisor and the Anatomy and Physiology Teacher in the Upper School. He and his wife, Sunshine, reside in the McCallie gates serving as Dorm parents in one of the Dorms, with their four children, two boys, Kalin and Tanner, and two girls, Lyla and Katelee.

Though more recently from California, Mr. Bass grew up in many parts of the South including Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.  From 2002-2004, Mr. Bass served a two-year, fulltime, voluntary mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Tennessee Nashville Mission – also without pay. Upon returning from his mission, he earned a Bachelor's degree in Science/Athletic Training from Brigham Young University (2010) and a Master's degree in Science/Athletic Training from the University of Florida (2012). 

Mr. Bass has served in many different positions in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including young men's leader, youth Sunday school teacher and nursery helper. After his service as Branch President, he may be called to serve elsewhere in the LDS Church, as there is no hierarchy of positions. Members of the LDS Church simply serve where they are called.

Ms. Bass has also spent a lifetime serving and is a member of the Relief Society – the largest and oldest women’s organization in the world.
Relief Society, an official auxiliary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, spans the globe and invites all to come unto Christ. Relief Society has provided over 175 years of service and sisterhood with the purpose of preparing women to increase their faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement – and to strengthen families, homes, communities and nations by working in unity to help those in need.
