Rev. Carol Lotts

Reverend Carol Lotts is and always has been a spiritual seeker. Discovering Science of Mind through The Ventura Center for Spiritual Living was life changing, awe inspiring and an opportunity to grow in the idea of an all-loving, all-inclusive, non-judgmental God. This beautiful philosophy ignited and en-souled her heart with such power that she studied her way through practitioner training and went on to graduate from the Holmes Institute ministerial program.

Reverend Carol’s strengths include spiritual counseling, teaching, singing and speaking. She is a strong youth leader and passionately loves children. Her intention to empower children with the Science of Mind teachings led to the creation of her recently published first children’s book “My Friend Ernest” - a book of spiritual empowerment for children.

Reverend Carol is deeply committed in her work to heal, inspire, teach and empower, in full trust that the invisible hand of God is always pointing us all to greater life especially when it cannot yet be seen. She will continue to walk her path of ministry with joy, humility and integrity - always in the name of love, only love.
