Leadership roles

The Core Team—our volunteer small group leaders, worship leaders, office aids, and L1FTOFF Crew—is essential to L1FT. The Confirmation team meets most weeks from August until May (including the Shift Conference August 24-26). The Middle School team meets on Sundays from 2:30pm-5:00pm. The High School team meets on Wednesdays from 6:00pm-8:30pm.


Small group Leader

Small Group Leaders foster relationships with groups of approximately 8-10 teens over the course of the year beginning with the Shift Conference. They have a passion for their Catholic faith, and they support, encourage, and challenge teens into a deeper relationship with Jesus.

Worship leader

Worship Leaders lead prayer and praise + worship during L1FTOFF--our weekly large group gathering with teens and parents. Worship Leaders also assist with the high school and middle school youth ministry and Confirmation groups by leading more intimate prayer and praise + worship sessions.


L1FTOFF Crew members are an essential part of L1FTOFF. These volunteers are energetic and friendly and have a desire to serve. They help create a welcoming space for our teens by greeting the teens and setting up and tearing down the food, audio, lighting, and other equipment.

Office Aid

There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes to make L1FT great. Each week, hours of work go into the final product seen by our teens and families. Office aids help with clerical work (i.e. attendance) and making phone calls. This can be done during L1FT events, in the parish office during the week, or even at home.


All volunteers will be background checked and are expected to maintain an appropriate relationship with the youth at all times by following the Safe Environment guidelines set by the Diocese of Dallas and St. Monica.
