Contact: Ethan Gutheil


Hello! My name is Ethan and I am the worship director of a new church right here in San Jose, called CenterSet Church. Check out our website, centerset.church, for more info.

Here's the deal, we have an awesome worship band, and we are looking to grow. We currently meet for Church Online every Sunday! You can find our experiences on our website (centerset.church) or on Facebook Live. You can check out past experiences on our YouTube page as well. Our music is only part of the church, but it is amazing to see countless lives changed already. You can be a part of that!

Our church is mainly younger professionals (families and singles), and our band reflects that demographic as well. We have pretty high musical standards, but we love to work with musicians and vocalists to help them reach said standards!

Check out the resources above and follow us on Instagram to see much more.
