Annette M. Eckart is an internationally known speaker and servant of the Lord. She and her husband Ed founded Bridge for Peace, a ministry of Healing to the Nations, in 1988. Together they lead Bridge for Peace teams on short-term missions around the world, praying for people and training them in biblical healing principles. Between missions Annette speaks about her own healing from rheumatoid arthritis, ministers at conferences and retreats, and hosts the Bridge for Peace television show. Annette and Ed live in Wading River, New York.
Ed Eckart heads Bridge for Peace worldwide. Ed’s story testifies to how God uses men mightily when they follow Him without regard to personal gain. After twenty years in industry, Ed left a successful career as quality control manager with an international firm to work with Christians persecuted throughout the world. By this time, he had seen God miraculously heal Annette, his wife. Ed had already, through a series of extraordinary events, purchased the first piece of land that he understood God would use as a center for Bridge for Peace. In 2009, God again demonstrated His faithfulness through the building of the international headquarters.
