Ryan Edberg, co-founder of Kingdom Youth Conferences and lead singer for the Christian rock band Silverline, is currently touring the nation to reclaim the generation for Christ.

While some conferences build up to the salvation message, Kingdom Youth Conferences "start off with the first day, first message as a salvation call," Edberg tells OneNewsNow. "We really think that that is day one of the beginning of the rest of your life, and then the next several days we really talk about finding your identity in Christ and who does He say He is."

The students at the conference, as well as those in the organizations two-year Bible school, are encouraged to pray for a breakthrough in the generation. And Edberg says he has seen emotional and physical healing take place.

"There was a girl that came that was deaf, and she left hearing, bawling and calling her parents and youth leaders," he accounts. "God's just wanting to touch a generation and show himself strong."

The final two stops for the conferences this year are in Plant City, Florida and Desoto, Texas.
