With 95% of the 3 million people in the Silicon Valley unchurched, someone needs to do something. That’s where we come in. CenterSet Church is an answer to the growing problem of so few thriving churches in our region. We aim to turn the tide and turn what was once the least Bible-minded region in the US into one the fastest growing movements in our valley.
The Silicon Valley is the center of innovation for the United States. It is home to companies such as Google, Facebook, and Apple. 1 in 5 startups begin in this region and Silicon Valley boasts the highest median income for families in the country, however, they have the lowest per capita giving to charities. The Silicon Valley is the most unchurched region in the US.
Santa Clara lies in the heart of Silicon Valley and the surrounding 5 mile radius has a population of 500k+ people. It is home to many young millennial families where 50% of the people in Santa Clara are below the age of 36 and 1/3 of which have children.
What Leaders Are Saying
“At Westgate Church, we have been praying for the bay area for many years asking God to bring young, creative and gifted leaders to our area to start new effective churches for Jesus Christ. We believe that Ali and Yasmin are a direct answer to that prayer. We look forward to partnering with him and seeing the Silicon Valley reached with the transformative power of the Gospel!!”
Steve Clifford, Senior Pastor Westgate Church
“At ICC, we are encouraged to see Ali and Yasmin who fruits of this church, are both equipped and empowered to plant a church in order to reach out to the unchurched people in Silicon Valley. We believe with their experience and Muslim background combined with the knowledge of the spiritual warfare, they will be a great instrument of God to reach out to several ethnic groups in the Bay Area.”
Kamil Navai, Senior Pastor Iranian Christian Church
