Prior to coming to Maranatha in 2008, Mr. Jeff Drost served in the US Navy Reserve as Mess-Management Specialist First Class. He has further management experience, being Manager of Cousins Submarines, Inc., and Branch Manager at Associated Bank in Greenfield, Wisconsin. Mr. Drost also spent time as Compliance Officer and Mortgage Loan Underwriter at First Bank Financial Centre (Oconomowoc) and Fraud Investigator at Mortgage Guaranty Insurance Corporation (MGIC, Milwaukee).

Mr. Drost and his wife, Karen, have three children—Joseph, Sara, and Noah. The Drost family attends Calvary Baptist Church, and Mr. Drost is a Youth Ministry volunteer. His favorite state is the “state of order,” although he claims he is “partial to the studying of chaos and emergence theories within organizational science.” The Apostle Paul is Mr. Drost’s favorite missionary, and he loves Ronald Reagan. His football favorite teams are almost a tie between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he says that the Packers win top favorite position.
