Pastor Ed and Diane Reynolds

Co-Founder, CEO and Co-Founder, COO

Since 2013, Pastor Edward and Diane Reynolds have dedicated their lives to working with the homeless, people living in extreme poverty, and those suffering from food insecurity. Driven by a profound calling, they have organized outreach events, serving up to 400 individuals at a single event. Their work has enabled them to form deep connections with those they serve, fostering understanding and breaking stereotypes about homelessness.


In 2021, the Reynolds took their commitment a step further by founding Matthew’s Light, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. This initiative allowed them to delve deeper into the root causes of homelessness and its broader impact on neighborhoods, county services and resources, and the local economy. Their ongoing education and experiences culminated in the development of Cana Village - a revolutionary vision aimed at ending the homeless crisis. Cana Village combines elements of successful individual programs into a cohesive, supportive community, representing a bold step forward in addressing and resolving homelessness comprehensively.
