What’s the Difference Between a Church Podium and a Lectern?

Just as some churches have pulpits and others have freestanding ambos, depending on a given congregation’s traditions, still others have podiums or lecterns from which speakers address worshipers. Or, they may mix and match these different types of worship furniture!

Technically speaking, however, the key difference between a podium and a lectern is whether a speaker stands on or at it to address those gathered. The raised platform on which a worship leader or other presenter stands is the podium. A lectern is a high desk-like structure that a speaker may stand behind and “lecture” from.
