The thing I like about Bill Crews is that he comes at issues from unorthodox perspectives. He is constantly trying to understand fellow human beings. Not to condemn them. He challenges us to hear the variety of humanity and to walk for a time in other people’s shoes. This is what helps build a better and kinder society.Michael Kirby
Bill Crews is an unpolished gem, an unpretentious Man of God who gives all religions a good name – in fact, a great name! Bill doesn’t just ‘talk the talk’ when it comes to charity and good works, he walks the journey too, with his sleeves rolled up and sweat on his brow.
