Apostolic Company

What is an Apostolic Company?

Each person in our company represents a sphere of churches incorporating national and international dimensions.  We saw that to further implement the command of Jesus to reach the world, we must be more integrated in our approach.  We saw that together we could leverage spiritual, mental, physical, and financial resources, thus making each of us stronger.

We see our role as one to further impart, envision, empower, train, and facilitate the preaching of the gospel and the establishing of churches and schools through the world.  We are servants who desire to raise up functioning apostolic teams in every nation and in every region of those nations.   This is done through the locally autonomous churches in covenant with one another and with the Apostolic Company.  We prepare international, national, regional, and local teams for the hands on work of maturing Christ’s church.

Samuel Rhein

Samuel Rhein was born in 55 in a godly family with a Jewish background. At the age of 14 he had a first encounter with the Lord Jesus and met him as his personal Savior. A year later he started to preach; at the age of 17 started to preach the Word of God in Scotland and ministered in several nations. He got married with Michèle and they had two sons Stephan and Daniel. At the age of 30 the two got desperately hungry for more of Him and received the baptism of the Holy Sprit at 33.

Then there was a special relationship started with Lee Lacoss, Sam Matthews, Philip Mohabir and James Cooper. Beginning from some meetings in their home in the early 1990s, their first church was founded and which soon grew to 4 churches in 2000! At the same time, in collaboration with the Bussieres and by God’s grace, they founded a prophetic school which touched over 2000 students from all over France and many nations as well, such as Scotland, Germany, Italy, Swiss, Belgium, Netherlands, Brazil, Portugal, Central Africa, Ivory Cost, Gabon, Madagascar, Pacific Islands, Denmark.  At least 4 of their students have started then schools of their own for which we are thankful and rejoice!

During the same time, a team was raised and they have served it with the passion to see a living church raised in every city of France! In 1995, joining with Michael Schiffmann, they invested in an annual gathering of prophetic leaders from different nations of Europe. For the past 4 years they had a national seminar for women who has been a tremendous tool in the Lord’s hand to move some of the blockages in the way in Europe.

Right in the middle of this time of growth, God spoke early in 2000 to leave Belfort and He opened the way in July 2001 for Samuel to go to Nice to focus more on Europe.  He is investing more time than ever in intercession with a growing passion for the Christ and his precious church!
