|Assistant priest at the Church of the Holy Trinity|
|Church||Anglican Church of Canada|
Raised in the United Church of Canada, later a member of a Baptist congregation, Ferry joined the Anglican Church in his twenties. He studied at the University of Toronto at Scarborough, Tyndale University College (then Ontario Bible College) and Wycliffe College.
He was inhibited from functioning as a priest and later became affiliated with the Metropolitan Community Church, a gay and lesbian founded church which has taken an explicitly gay-affirming stance including the ordination of openly gay candidates for the ministry. He was later partially reinstated as an Anglican priest and now occasionally celebrates the Eucharist and preaches at the Church of the Holy Trinity, Toronto.
Ferry published a book about his experience, In the Courts of the Lord, in 1994.
In 2006 Archbishop Terence Finlay, who had inhibited Ferry, married a lesbian couple in a United Church of Canada church, prompting Ferry to publicly demand an apology for Finlay's treatment of him.
