Reverend Bill Crews AM is a Minister of the Exodus Foundation, an organisation that exists to meet the immediate material, emotional and spiritual needs of disadvantaged and marginalised people.
Our staff and students have a regular, ongoing engagement with their community through the Exodus programs, including feeding homeless people and boosting schoolkids' literacy.
Others are providing expertise to help with the establishment of the Bill Crews Trust, which will have a more international focus.
