Randy has served with Wisdom for the past 23 years. Randy and Catie are empty nesters with special privileges: getting to lick beaters yourself, having dessert any night of the week, sleeping in until any hour of the day and eating pie for breakfast! For 29 years Randy and Catie raised and home educated their four children, Nathan, Joshua, Esther and Reuben who are now all married and raising children of their own. Nathan, a journeyman carpenter, owns and operates Porcupine Contracting. Joshua operates Kopp Studios as an RCM piano instructor and is a certified electrical journeyman, Esther, a horse trainer, and her husband are outfitters in Northern B.C. Reuben completed his Turf Grass Management program at Olds College and is currently assistant superintendent at Blackhawk Golf Course near Edmonton.
The Kopps did not pursue high school credits, but encouraged and supported each of their children in their vocational callings and walk with the Lord Jesus. What began as a response to what was going on in the public school system soon became a way of life as God opened their eyes and hearts to all He wanted to do in their lives. Their Christian home education for each of the children included studying and memorizing the Scriptures, serving others outside the home with their abilities and talents, developing a host of life skills, pursuing their passions, enjoying healthy outdoor activities and working together to make wise purchases.
The Kopp family advocates the pursuit and stewardship of one's God-given abilities, talents and passions. Randy enjoys hiking, canoeing, fishing, hunting, gardening, golf, traveling and playing board games.
