Welcome to the Awakening Hour!
In September of 1989 in the providence of God, Dr. William R. Crews felt the Lord leading him to begin a weekly half-hour television program that would be unique and different from most of those provided on TV stations across America. After months of prayerfully pondering the idea, he became convinced that this was clearly the Lord’s will for his life.
“The Awakening Hour” began on a few small stations. Using a one camera shot in a small rented room with only the white wall as a background, the program was birthed. From that humble and modest beginning, it has grown under the hand and blessing of God to become what it is today – an international Bible teaching / preaching program that is distinctly unique in its no frills, no nonsense, no entertainment approach to Christian TV.
To the glory of God, people are being reached with the real, unwatered down, uncompromised, unpolitical, complete Gospel of Christ. Dr Crews feels that the Lord wants him to deal with vital subjects in a bold, direct, plain and often confrontational way that is often neglected today. The name, “Awakening Hour” indicates that it is a program designed to inform, enlighten, disturb, and arouse.
