He attended Harvard and became an assistant teacher at Exeter Academy in New Hampshire.
In 1815, the Boston Unitarian Association licensed Ware to preach, and in 1817, he was ordained and became pastor of the Second Church in Boston, Massachusetts. He was also Professor of Pulpit Eloquence and Pastoral Care at the Harvard Divinity School (1829–42).
He edited the Christian Disciple (later renamed the Christian Examiner), and ran the Society for Religious Improvement at Harvard University (his father was on the faculty there, as well).
A two volume Memoir and a four volume Works were published three years after his death.
