Coty Pinckney

Coty Pinckney grew up in suburban Washington, DC, and attended Davidson College as an undergraduate. After teaching high school in Kenya, he studied the economics of poor countries at Stanford, earning a doctorate. Coty married Beth DuBose – a fellow Davidson alum – in 1979, and returned to Kenya in 1981 for three years. During this time, God used serious marriage problems to humble Coty and Beth, to bring them to their knees in seeing their own sinfulness and desperate need of God’s saving and sustaining grace.
