About Rev. Bill Crews

Named as one of Australia’s 100 most influential people and awarded the Ernst & Young Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award, Rev. Crews strives for a better world.

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.

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. His tireless work and commitment to the disadvantaged is a stark lesson to everyone of us. He  proves that ‘ the power of one’ can and does make a difference.

Even people who don’t believe in saints call Bill Crews a saint. A unique influence on the life of Sydney, Bill’s ministry has served the marginalised members of our society – the poor, the hungry, the dispossessed – and his example has encouraged the rest of us to respond to their needs.

While his 2GB colleagues earn millions, Bill Crews gets a casual rate

He supports voluntary euthanasia and opposes school chaplains. No wonder people ask, ‘Are you really a minister?’

He supports gay rights, voluntary euthanasia and decriminalising illicit drug use. He’s a father of four whose messy divorce became tabloid fodder. He’s even been accused of inflaming racial tensions.

He’s also a 75-year-old Christian minister working for conservative Sydney station 2GB*.

“People often ask me, ‘Are you really a minister?'” says Reverend Bill Crews, whose Sunday night program attracts more than a quarter of Sydney’s radio audience. “If they don’t know my show, they assume it’ll be a church service with hymns; that I’ll be pouring conservative Christian ideology down their throats.”

In fact, Crews opens each broadcast with a quote from Read More
