Recordings from YXL Horn Creek 2012


Here are the audio record­ings from YXL Horn Creek 2012. The first cou­ple of days we had some prob­lems with the record­ing but it’s lis­ten­able. We also missed one Grace Talk, sorry!

YXL West is going home to Horn Creek!


Due to cut­backs at Glo­ri­eta, the con­fer­ence cen­ter near Santa Fe, NM that has hosted YXL for the last 7 years, we are mov­ing to a new loca­tion for 2012.

Or per­haps I should say we’re mov­ing back to an old loca­tion — Horn Creek, Col­orado, in the Wet Moun­tain Val­ley near West­cliffe, Col­orado. We’ll be in the same San­gre de Cristo moun­tains as Glo­ri­eta, just about 5 hours fur­ther north.

YXL started at Horn Creek in 1977, back when we called it “National Pres­by­ter­ian and Reformed Youth Lead­er­ship Con­fer­ence.” We relo­cated to Glo­ri­eta for cost rea­sons, but we’re glad to say that it is once again afford­able for us to go back.

Horn Creek is a fan­tas­tic place. We’ll be at the Ranch facil­ity, which is a per­fect setup for a con­fer­ence like YXL. You can read more about it here: http://www.horncreek.org/

We will of course have to change the name of this website :-)

Can’t wait to see you all there!

YXL West is Moving!


You may have heard that Glo­ri­eta Con­fer­ence Cen­ter where YXL West has been meet­ing for the last 7 years has been going through some finan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties (the leaks in the roof may have been a hint). They have announced a major cut back in their oper­a­tions, and will only be host­ing the Cen­trifuge camps in the sum­mer. You can read more about it here: http://glorietaconferencecenter.org/statement

Glo­ri­eta has been a won­der­ful host to us, and we are deeply thank­ful for their ser­vice to the king­dom. Please join us in pray­ing that God would bless them and guide them through this time. We would all love to see Glo­ri­eta thriv­ing again.

So, we’re mov­ing to a new loca­tion in 2012, most likely in Col­orado. We’re final­iz­ing the agree­ment now and will announce the new loca­tion as soon as every­thing is confirmed.
