Reverend Bill Crews AM

The 2015 NSW Human Rights Award was awarded to Reverend Bill Crews AM, the Founder and Chairman of the Exodus Foundation. Reverend Crews has dedicated his life to helping the elderly, sick, homeless and disadvantaged and works tirelessly to improve the lives of others.

Reverend Bill Crews started his career as an electrical engineer and was introduced to the Wayside Chapel in late 1969. After finding a strong connection with the congregation, he decided to quit his engineering career and work full time at the Wayside Chapel. Bill since became a Minister for the Uniting Church and for 30 years has run the Exodus Foundation. He is a Minister of the Ashfield Parish in Sydney’s Inner West.
