Pastor Root has attended Tomah Baptist Church since he was a senior in high school. It was here he met and married his wife Debbie as well. Married since 1977, they have three grown children, all serving faithfully in their local churches, and Pastor Root and his wife are the very pleased grandparents of five beautiful granddaughters and two handsome grandsons.
Pastor Don has worked faithfully in the church since his arrival, including the teen ministry for over twenty years. Although he worked in the banking industry in Tomah for seventeen years, he resigned from his banking position in 1994 and began working in the insurance industry to create more flexibility for full-time service for the Lord. He became the part-time assistant pastor in December 1998 and in April of 2008 was ordained by Tomah Baptist Church. Despite the friendly football rivalry he has with the pastor, Pastor Don has been a faithful supporter of God’s work here at Tomah Baptist Church and loves to serve the Lord wherever God leads.
