As Groups Pastor, Mike leads the teams aimed at fostering life-changing community here at Center Pointe. He comes to us with extensive ministry leadership experience and a passion for helping people grow in their discipleship.
Mike is married to Toni, who is among other things, an excellent cook. The family enjoys good food and good friends to share it with. The Tolle’s enjoy trying new and specialized menus, and consider themselves to be “foodies,” in the best way possible! Their children are Anthony, Luke and Jill. Anthony is serving in South Korea with the Air Force, Luke attends college locally and Jill is in high school. The Tolle’s also have a fur baby… a Goldendoodle named Lola.
Mike earned his Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies at Cincinnati Christian University, and has spent time in all corners of the tri-state area, including Indiana and Northern Kentucky. As long-time residents of Cincinnati, Mike and the rest of the Tolle family are huge Cincinnati sports fans. Mike loves the Bearcats, the Reds, and the Bengals, but college basketball is his favorite!
Mike believes that the mission of God is intended to be a natural yet encompassing way of life.... That it’s about developing our call to be good news and to share good news where we live, work and play. He knows that when it come to living and loving like Jesus, community and connection with others are vital aspects of a disciple-making lifestyle.
