About OSL

Operation: Solid Lives

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.

To find an OSL partner church near you, or to learn more about how to bring OSL to your church visit www.oslpartnership.com.

Jerry Dirmann is the author and founder of OPERATION: SOLID LIVES, as well as the founder and Senior Pastor of The Rock, based in Anaheim, CA. Along with his wife Kimberly, Jerry has served in various ministries over the past 25 years, including being the National Youth Director for The Foursquare Church. The Rock is one of the fastest-growing churches in Orange County, California. Now it is a multi-language, multi-congregation church with satellites in California, Michigan, and Florida.
