As a Eucharist-centered movement within the Roman Catholic Church, Life Teen leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, Life Teen seeks to unleash the fullness of the Sacramental power present within the young Church.

The Life Teen Program was the name of a parish-based youth ministry at one parish in Mesa, AZ focused on the Mass and gathering teens together at a Life Night that kicked off in April of 1985. It wasn’t until the early 1990’s that the name Life Teen started to be used and implemented in other parishes. Life Teen has grown a great deal and we continue to be focused on bringing teens to Christ in the Eucharist and gathering them to be formed in the Roman Catholic faith.

Number of parishes implementing Edge or Life Teen. Life Teen can be found in 24 countries, including Haiti, Canada, South Africa, China, Malaysia, The Philippines, East Africa, Uganda, Germany, Mexico, Argentina, Spain, England, and the Netherlands.

Combined number of teens and adults who attend a Life Night, Edge Night, or Purpose Confirmation Session each week, join us at Summer Camp, a Steubenville Youth Conference, or the Life Teen Leadership Conference, participate in a weekly Youth Mass, and interact with us on social media. The movement continues to grow each year.

Joe Lundin
Youth Minister

Joe is SO excited for this next journey as Youth Minister for St John's! Joe is an Experienced Ministry leader with over 10 years of dedicated service in leading and guiding young individuals. Skilled in effectively communicating and building relationships with diverse groups of people! Joe started as a Core member with Stoughton Lifeteen at age 18. In his time there he formed a great platform to hone his skills for public speaking and giving talks, testimonies, and much more. Soon thereafter, Joe Spent 2 years on the road conducting over 250 retreats with NET Ministries. NET consisted of ministry teams of 8-12 young adults. These young adults traveled around the country conducting retreats that aimed to show the love of the Father. Joe gave countless talks and led over 15,000 youth in small group altogether during his time with NET Ministries.

Shortly after finishing his time with NET as a missionary, Joe was hired by them and worked as a regional office local outreach specialist at their regional office in Cincinnati, OH. Joe developed strong leadership and team management skills as he served as the main liaison between diocesan office and NET. Moreover, as a worship leader for the past 10 years as well; Joe has fostered the atmosphere of worship at over 500+ events. Some of them weddings, retreats, and workshops to name a few. Joe also was honored to take the role of training potential worship leaders at NET Ministries "Worship Leader Training" as it was called. In this role he encouraged the NET Missionaries to not only become a better musician, but a better steward of the knowledge that they are cultivating a true heart of worship in those they serve.


Joe is one who passionately leads others closer to Christ through a heart of worship. All in all St. John's is extremely excited about Joe's experience and confidence to effectively lead the teens at St John's closer to Christ.


Joe is an avid bowler, sports fanatic, and loves to play NHL 24, NBA 2k24, and Madden 24!!!
