    Notes 
    • In 1986, Philip Schopf reported that his parents were Jake and Isabelle Schopf, and that they were Baptist missionaries living in Taguaginitia De Norte, Brasil. Philip said he was the second born of their four sons. He indicated that both his parents were around age 62 in 1988.

      In a brief biographical sketch of his father, Jake Schopf, Jr., writes that "Jake was a stand out athlete at Everett High School, where he lettered in Football, Basketball, Baseball and Track. He was offered full scholarships in football and baseball at several colleges but chose instead to attend a small Bible college in Los Angeles, California to prepare to be a missionary." He received his bachelor's degree from Los Angeles Baptist Theological Seminary.

      Jake later wrote that his father "was born again and called to the ministry at age twelve through the ministry of John R. Rice. The day of his conversion he, along with some friends, went throughout Everett inviting people to come to the evangelistic services. As a young man at Calvary Baptist Church his heart was touched by the missionaries who filled the pulpit and taught Sunday School. Jake was a leader in the youth group....it was during this time that he first got to know the one who would become the love of his life, Isabelle Gates."

      For over 40 years Jake and Isabelle served the Lord in various parts of Brazil; Ceara, Belem in Para, Sao Jose in Sao Paolo, and Brasilla. He retired from the foreign field to be Western Representative of Baptist Mid-Missions. Around 1992, Jake retired again and wound up first as interim pastor, and later as senior pastor, of First Baptist Church of Soap Lake, Washington.
