As a non-profit organization founded in 2018, Light of the Holy Spirit Ministries, or LotHS (pronounced Lotus), is dedicated to making the teachings of A Course in Miracles available, and to facilitating Course students in their practice of its transformational principles.
Rev Bob Loder, OMC, the Spiritual Leader at Light of the Holy Spirit, is an Ordained Minister and a devoted student of A Course in Miracles.
Ordained by Pathways of Light Spiritual College, he is a spiritual counselor, and facilitator of various courses and groups. Bob is an open-minded individual who offers unconditional love and open arms to all. As a facilitator of Mind-Healing, his goal is to support, inspire and empower others on their path.
Bob was raised in Denville, New Jersey, a child of the 50's and 60's. In 1974, after two tours in Vietnam, he moved first to Florida, and then to Culpeper, Virginia with his wife Brenda in 2017 to be near Brenda's mom, brother and sister in blissful retirement.
Bob has served as a hospital chief engineer, a real estate developer, a licensed general contractor, and a licensed water, fire, smoke, and mold mitigation specialist.
He was active in the Boy Scouts of America serving as a scoutmaster, all the way up to Council President of the West Central Florida Council in the Tampa Bay area. He also enjoyed playing in his band for many years as both a guitarist and percussionist.
Brenda grew up in Falls Church in northern Virginia. Professionally, she has been a secretary, a legal assistant, a marketing director, and along side Bob, a business owner.
Bob and Brenda retired from their own restoration business in Tampa, Florida in 2012 after 20+ years.
They enjoyed several A Course in Miracles study groups in Florida, and look forward to getting to know you through the study groups here in Culpeper.
