Beth Coetzee: Church Administrator

Beth Coetzee grew up on the Texas/Mexico border and is a graduate of Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas.  As you might guess from the shared last name, she’s married to Pastor Dries.  It was a match made in Houston in 2000.  Together they have 5 children: three grownup ones, Allison in Houston and Harrison & Olivia, in the Twin Cities, MN (we seem to lose one or two with every move) and two at home with them in Wooster, Alazar & Endalkachew whom they adopted from Ethiopia in 2007.  As a mom who embraces the African proverb, “it takes a village”, she is delighted to have the opportunity to pass on some of the kindness and care her own distant children have received from other adults in their lives.  Beth says, “I feel privileged to have the opportunity to build relationships with students of all ages and stages, and nurture them into the life and mission of Westminster Presbyterian Church.”
