Erik Miles, Parish Council Chair, Member since 1998
Erik has been influenced by the Basilica since he moved to Minnesota from Northern Virgina in 1989. For years, he has made the commute to The Basilica from Chaska, then Eden Prairie, and now Savage. Currently, Erik volunteers with Pathways, a 10 session program open to the community to help people learn valuable life skills and embrace the power of change.
Erik describes his leadership style as a servant leader. He defines a servant leader as someone who puts service to others before self-interest; includes all members in the decision process; and tries to create a positive culture.
