About My Family

Ali is the first child of immigrants from Iran. He is Silicon Valley born and raised and naturally became a software engineer like many in the valley. After receiving Christ at age 25 he immediately had a heart for the lost and is deeply passionate for the people of Silicon valley to experience new life through a relationship with Jesus! Ali then served as a youth pastor for five years and teaching pastor for two more at his previous church. Ali has been married to his wife, Yasmin, for more than three years. She is a wedding and lifestyle photographer and a former TV evangelist to Iran. They have one child, Sophia Noelle Roohi, who was born on March 14, 2016. 

About My Church Plant

CenterSet Church exists to passionately lead people who are far from God to know and to follow Jesus. "Love God" is our "up" ministry with vibrant and life-giving worship experiences for lost people to come and learn about Jesus. "Love Each Other" is our "in" ministry, where pastoral care and healing takes place. "Love the World" is our "out" ministry, where we love and serve our community.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at
