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 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 '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 our blissful retirement.
Bob has served as a hospital chief engineer, a real estate developer, a licensed general contractor, and licensed water, fire, smoke, and mold mitigation specialist.
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 bands for many years.
Brenda 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.
