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

Depending on a given congregation’s traditions, a church or synagogue may have pulpits, freestanding ambos, podiums, or lecterns from which speakers address worshipers. Or they may mix and match these different types of worship furniture to best suit their needs.

Technically speaking, the critical 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.”

However, no matter which type of church furniture you want, we can design a custom piece that complements the existing interior of the church or synagogue. Ambos, podiums, pulpits, and lecterns are all crafted by true artists here at New Holland Church Furniture, and we’ll work hard to ensure we exceed your expectations.
