Note that in all these examples "reverend" is used as an adjective before someone's name, in much the same way that honorable (as used for public officials) is. It is not a noun and it is not a synonym for "minister".
In the United States in the 20th and 21st centuries, despite the protests of the traditional, it is very common to find clergy referred to as "Reverend John Smith," without the "the"; and addressed as "Reverend Smith" — to the extent that this usage may be said to be sanctioned by use.
Anglican usage is for deacons and priests to be the Reverend, deans to be the Very Reverend, abbots and bishops to be the Right Reverend and archbishops to be the Most Reverend.

 Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping
True, Reverend Billy may be preaching to the converted in the theater, but his record of on-site performances at the Disney store in Times Square and Starbucks in Astor Place (pick any of the three on that block), prove that he is most concerned with preaching to the non-converted, in true missionary fashion.
For example, last fall Reverend Billy rallied supporters to stage a public reading of Edgar Allen Poe's poem, "The Raven," in front of the author's house, causing such a publicity stir that the NYU board of directors decided to negotiate with the activists who were protesting against the University's plans to demolish the house.
Reverend Billy's work demonstrates that political performance can be more than conscientious entertainment but can create real world differences.

Reverend Gary Davis was a towering figure in at least two realms.

Reverend Gary usually tuned the guitar to a relatively difficult E-B-G-D-A-E configuration rather than the "open" tuning favored by most of his fellow street musicians (who could make chords by simply barring across a fret).

 Are Preachers To Be Called “Reverend”? : Christian Courier
He notes that only in recent times has the Catholic Church begun to employ “Most Reverend” for its Bishops and Archbishops, while certain priests (of the “Monsignor” rank) are addressed as “Right Reverend.” The Professor contends that the Catholic practice began in Ireland and subsequently spread to America.
As a concluding point, we must not fail to notice that while there is ample evidence against men using the title “Reverend” to set themselves apart from others, a common argument against the use of this expression is exegetically flawed.
If one contends that “reverend” is restricted to God alone, he might as well allege that the term “holy” should never be used of man. And yet, clearly, that is not the case (cf.

 Grace Points: Holy and Reverend is His Name
In Psalm 111:9 we read, "He has sent redemption to his people; he has ordained his covenant forever; holy and reverend is his name." Many times in the Bible we see references to the holiness of God, such as Isaiah 6:2,3: ".
reverend is his name." This is the only time we find the word "reverend" in the Scriptures, although the word "reverence" is used several times.
Since it is not Scriptural to refer to a religious leader or a minister as "holy father", or "your holiness", it must be also unscriptural to address one as "reverend," or "your reverence".
