The following organizations are members of L.I.F.T.: 1) The Fisk Memorial Chapel, 2) The Wesley Foundation at Fisk University, 4) the Mount Zion College Ministry, 5) Young Excited and Saved (Y.E.S.) Ministries, and  7) Evey Nation Campus Ministries. Even though the campus leaders of the aforementioned organizations meet in the Fisk Memorial Chapel on Tuesdays at 12:00pm, any member on-campus religious group, which is recognized by the Office of Student Affairs at Fisk University, may attend the meetings.
