Although Dr. Tracy Foster now lives in Wisconsin, he still considers the state of Montana to be “home, sweet home” and favors it above any other state because of its beauty. His favorite verse is 2 Peter 3:18: “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.”
Before joining Maranatha’s faculty, Dr. Foster served in the United States Army as Military Intelligence Officer, Finance Officer, Instructor, Financial Analyst, and Comptroller, and was deployed twice to Afghanistan (2003-2004, 2010) and once to Kuwait (2009). Upon returning to the United States from Afghanistan in 2010, Dr. Foster held the position of Defense Financial Analyst for the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon (Washington D.C.) and then came to Maranatha in 2012. Dr. Foster has also worked with Motorola as a financial analyst and has been a manager in the retail food industry.
