Student Disciplines

Class Attendance

Class attendance is mandatory for all students as discipleship cannot take place if a student isn’t there.
Proverbs 10:4 “He who has a slack hand becomes poor, but the hand of the diligent makes rich.”

Church Attendance

Students attend both a weekend and mid-week church gathering, sit in the closest available seat and take notes on the messages taught.
Hebrews 10:25 “…not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”

Daily Bible Reading & Journaling

Students read designated chapters of the Bible each day and journal on what they hear God speak.
Joshua 1:8 “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”

Daily Prayer

Students spend time each day in undistracted prayer and pray out loud.
Ephesians 6:18 “Praying always with all prayer and supplication…”

Faithbuilder Teachings

Students listen to three faith-building teachings each week and take notes.
Romans 10:17 “So then, faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.”

Scripture Memorization

Students memorize one or two scriptures each week and recite them at the beginning of class to their coach.
Psalm 119:11 “Your Word I have hidden in my heart that I might not sin against you.”

Ministry Involvement

Students serve weekly in a church ministry.
Ephesians 4:16 “…the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.”

Godly Lifestyle

Students are to be an example of a disciple wherever they are. Walking in love with those around them, submitting to their leaders in humility, and maintaining healthy relationships with their family.
1 Timothy 4:12,15 “…be and example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity… that your progress may be evident to all.”


Students are limited to 2 hours of secular media each week.
Psalm 1:1a,2 “Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the ungodly… but his delight is in the law of the Lord and in His law he meditates day and night.”


Students invite a different person to church each week, as well as invite someone to join OSL. They also share their story of how God changed their life with others, as a method to introduce them to Jesus.
Luke 14:23 says, “Then the master said to the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.”
