Youth Discipleship Training - OSL Level 1

It was in 2003 that the Lord impressed Jerry Dirmann, Senior Pastor of The Rock, to disciple his congregation using a modified version of a youth discipleship program he had written years earlier. Jerry called this version, “OPERATION: SOLID LIVES” (OSL).

While OSL started out slowly, by 2004 it had exploded. By 2008, OSL began to spread to other churches throughout the United States and Internationally. Now OSL is being used by hundreds of churches, resulting in thousands of lives being radically transformed.

OSL trains people within your church to become disciples who multiply other disciples, with this practical, in-depth discipleship programme.

The goal of OSL is not simply to graduate a person from a class; it is an integrated experience that changes the communities we serve because people truly become the ministers.

The OSL curriculum is designed with five levels that build upon one another to create a solid biblical foundation of discipleship. Each level includes powerful audio teachings, daily Bible readings and responsive journaling, Bible memorization and other key disciplines.

OSL is a system that takes people through teaching you to read the Bible, to hear from God. To be mature believers that follow after Christ. OSL changes even mature Christians. Joshua was instructed to meditate on the Word and keep it in his heart then God would make him successful and prosperous. (Joshua 1:8)

OSL will change you within weeks you will see a change. The Bible says that the Word will transform our mind. Our goal is to get you established and take it into other Caribbean islands. Out of this will come a strong OSL movement in Barbados, a centre of discipleship, we are believing from Barbados OSL will spread throughout the Caribbean.

God is not looking at my ability He is looking at my availability.

Matthew 28: 19-20

19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

How do we do this?
How do we fulfill the Great Commission and raise up men and women who become close followers of Jesus, who then become Disciples Makers? This is where OSL comes in.
OSL is a highly effective and proven system of discipleship that has been written, tested and refined – time and again for 20 years. OSL is designed to saturate students with the Word of God, drawing them into a deeper relationship with Jesus.

Luke 6: 46-48
46 “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? 47 As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. 48 They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.

OSL will give us the new wine skin for the new wine He wants to pour out on His end time church.
