LEC Connect serves the needy in central Florida, primarily Lake and Sumter Counties, by pairing those in need with youth participating in short-term mission projects through LEC, which is in partnership with the United Methodist Church. Teams of youth and adults from around the country come to the LEC for a week to work on a mission project. Possible projects are working on landscaping, completing light repairs, cleaning, and painting. LEC Connect has relationships with churches and agencies to coordinate these work projects and to provide project/site managers.
