Remembering Rev. Andre’ Reynolds | In Words, Videos and Pictures

Gospel artist and missionary Rev. Andre’ deKoven Reynolds passed away April 18, 2023, announced on social media by one of his ministry’s founding members, Dr. Prince Yelder. Reynolds was the son of the Rev. N.Q. Reynolds, the longtime national secretary of the historic Southern Christian Lead­ership Conference.

With a family legacy in civil rights activism, he set his own path.

After graduating from the University of Alabama, he started a gospel group, The Gospel Omegas, then founded the East Alabama Chapter of the Gospel Music Workshop of America. Another great achievement was his founding of the Alabama Fellowship Mass Choir, a group of 400 singers and musicians from across the state in 1992.

Reynolds ultimately founded TPW International Ministries, a 501(c)3 corporation in March 1997.
