Archbishop Terry and his wide Blanche were brought up in Simcoe, Ontario.  He was a  server in the local Anglican Church and in his late teens felt a strong call to ministry, and was mentored by the local priest.   He saw young Anglicans talking about Jesus at Church Army meetings and he wanted to tell people about Jesus.   This  led to Terry going to the Church Army Training College in Toronto at  the age of  20.  He graduated and was commissioned as a lay evangelist.  

He connected with the Bishop of the Arctic when trying to find out where he should serve, and while considering, Terry studied theology at Wycliffe College in Toronto leading to the priesthood.  He was prepared to serve in the Arctic if that was where God wanted him.  This Bishop proposed he come to the Arctic and study for ordination under him. and thus began a  lifetime in the Arctic.  He and Blanche moved to the Arctic in 1966 to begin 50 years in the North.   Terry was ordained deacon and priest in 1973.  

They served in the parishes of Holman, Cambridge Bay, Fort Simpson and Inuvik and then moved to Fort Nelson in the Diocese of the Yukon, before returning to the Arctic and the parish of Yellowknife.   In 1993, Terry  was  elected  Suffragan Bishop of the Arctic and in 1995 Bishop of the Diocese of the Yukon.   In 2005, he was  elected as Metropolitan of the Ecclesiastical Province of British Columbia and the Yukon, and was one of the four metropolitans, or regional senior bishops, of the Anglican Church of Canada.  

He and Blanche live in Whitehorse, YT.  He retired in 2010.  Bp Terry is 76 years old.    He and Blanche have four grown children  and six grandchildren.
