Founded in 2018, Light of the Holy Spirit Ministries is dedicated to making the teachings of A Course in Miracles available, and to facilitating Course students in their practice of its 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 in 2017 by Pathways of Light Spiritual College after years of study, Bob is a spiritual counselor and has been the facilitator of several courses and groups. He 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 along their spiritual path.
Bob was raised in Denville, New Jersey, a child of the '50s and '60s. In 1974, after two tours in Vietnam, he moved first to Florida, and then in 2017 to Culpeper, Virginia with his wife Brenda to be near mom, brother, and sister in blissful retirement.
Professionally, Bob has served as a hospital chief engineer, a real estate developer, a licensed general contractor, a licensed water, fire, smoke, and mold mitigation specialist, and a licensed certified home inspector.
He was active in the Boy Scouts of America starting as a scoutmaster, and ending as Council President of the West Central Florida Council in the Tampa Bay area. He also enjoyed playing both guitar and percussion in several rock bands for many years.
Brenda Loder grew up in Falls Church in northern Virginia. Professionally, she has been a secretary, a legal assistant, a marketing director, and alongside Bob, a business owner.
Bob and Brenda retired from their own restoration business in Tampa, Florida in 2012 after 20+ years.
They enjoyed several ACIM study groups in Florida, and look forward to getting to know you through the study groups here in and around Culpeper.
