Greg and Toni Huston

Greg Huston started Dare to Soar in 1999 to help men create more authentic, passionate, and grace-filled lives and to build relationships in which they experience more joy, love, and peace.

A pastor for 18 years, Greg first developed Dare to Soar programs, including individual counseling work, group work, and weekend retreats, to address the issues with which many men in the church were struggling.

After several years of working with men, Greg felt a growing desire to bring his expertise to couples. At the same time, men were requesting a way to introduce their wives to their spiritual and emotional journey. Greg responded by expanding Dare to Soar to include couples retreats—and to include his wife, Toni, to help lead them.

Together Greg and Toni launched the first Dare To Soar Couples retreat in 2005 and quickly added continuing care in the form of monthly groups. Since then, they have led couples weekends in Illinois, Texas, Colorado and the Czech Republic.

An accomplished speaker, facilitator, coach, and counselor, Greg is driven not just by his education and pastoral experiences but also by 30 years of extensive work on his own life. He has been used by God to powerfully impact the lives of many through his work.

One of the great joys of Greg and Toni’s life is doing this work together, sharing what they have learned in the “lab” of their own 40 plus years of marriage.  Another is their family, which includes two daughters and their husbands and two grandchildren.
