Jamie & Donna root

Missouri Missionaries


Jamie and Donna Root have been serving as Awana missionaries to the churches of Southern Missouri since 2013. Jamie has been a part of Awana Clubs since 4th grade when he was asked by a friend for “Bring a Friend Night”. Prior to becoming a missionary Jamie served in his local Awana club as Game Director and led a club in Willard, Missouri.


As a local missionary, he serves churches by training, equipping and encouraging pastors, church staff and Awana Ministry Directors so that they can run a more effective ministry. He works with them to help align their Awana ministry to their local church’s mission.


Donna has been involved with Awana for over 17 years; first as a Cubbies Director and now Co-Ministry Director. She spends her time working as a school librarian and serving alongside Jamie in their role as Awana Missionaries. Jamie and Donna Root were married in 1996 and blessed with their daughter, Shannon in 2009.


John 21:15: So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
