Church Podiums

Church Podiums
What kind of pulpit should you get for the church? Church podiums come in both modern and traditional styles, and the right one should match your sanctuary. Your speech will be that much more memorable when given behind a church pulpit from the Hertz Furniture collection.

If you are looking for something with convenient built-in features, we have a number of enhanced church podiums. The efficient design of our multimedia lecterns will keep your equipment functioning properly. If you have a large sanctuary or congregation, we also have some great sound lecterns.

How can I find a pulpit that fits my sanctuary?

All of our church podiums have an attractive appearance. We have a number of different styles and materials so you can choose the model that matches your sanctuary and style. If you prefer a more modern appeal, our acrylic lecterns have a light and airy feel that will frame your speakers beautifully. If you prefer a more traditional wood finish, wooden lecterns are available in wide selection of hues. All of our options will frame your clergy members beautifully and look great up there on the church stage.

What features will make the podium more comfortable?

Not all church pulpits have the same features. An angled reading surface is helpful to speakers because it makes it easier to read notes. Most reading surfaces include a book stop which prevents materials from sliding off. Some models even include a slide-out side shelf where you can put a laptop or audio-visual equipment. This is a great feature to have if you want to have multimedia presentations or events in the chapel.

Shelves are another useful thing to have in your church pulpit. Some clergy members might like to bring books and other source materials to use in a sermon, and shelves provide an excellent place to keep everything. Without shelves, the alternative is to stack everything on the reading surface of the church pulpit which will distract the congregation and might even block the speaker as well. A big stack of books can easily get knocked off of the surface, creating an unwanted interruption during the sermon.

How can I make sure the congregation hears the sermon?

Any house of worship can benefit from an excellent sound system as part of the pulpit furniture. Great speakers enable everyone to hear, whether there is a small crowd or a packed house. A church lectern with a built-in microphone and sound system ensures that speakers have a comfortable place to stand while addressing the congregation, and enables them to reach everyone without straining their voices.

Sound lecterns become even more convenient when endowed with extra features. To ensure that clergy members and congregants of any age are heard, consider an adjustable-height sound podium. Our models also include hands-free microphones which are mounted to lecterns so speakers don't have to worry about clip-ons falling off of shirts or holding anything throughout their speeches. Making sure that your church furniture has the technology you need is very important for the modern house of worship. Microphones and speakers can totally transform the experience of clergy members and congregation.

If you want to keep up with the times and really impress your members, consider a multimedia church lectern. These convenient pieces enable you to utilize laptops, slide projectors and more for a truly technological production. Even if you usually prefer classic speeches where the pastor reads a speech to the congregation, multimedia lecterns are good to have around for slideshows and special presentations.

How can I save space and still have a nice pulpit?

While full-height podiums are great, they can sometimes take up a considerable amount of space, making it difficult to accommodate other pulpit furniture. Our tabletop lecterns can transform any table into an attractive and functional speaker podium, while saving you space. Lightweight portable lecterns are another great choice if you need something that is easy to move from place to place. Both of these options are great for occasions when a sermon is given in the middle of the service, because they are easily set up and whisked away.

A great church podium can really help a speaker stand out and draw the respect they deserve. Hertz Furniture has a great selection of lecterns that will provide clergy members with a comfortable platform for sermons and coordinate with your other church furniture. The Hertz Design Center is here to help you if you have any questions about particular models, or you need help choosing the right podium.

Lecture halls, auditoriums, chapels and other venues require audio equipment and podiums. The Oklahoma Sound Corporation brings you a winning combination of top-quality microphones, powerful speakers and attractive lecterns. Their functional church podiums and portable lecterns come with a 25-year warranty so you can enjoy extended worry-free use.

Not every room has the same style or acoustics, so it is important to choose a podium that meets a space's practical and aesthetic requirements. We have wooden models with built-in sound systems as well as sleek acrylic ones. Hertz Furniture's full selection enables you to consider all of the options and ultimately choose the one which fulfills your needs.

It can be hard to make the right choice when buying a church lectern or podium. Although practical concerns such as the size of the sanctuary and the nature of events it will house are important, stylistic concerns must be taken into account as well. The ideal model will help the congregation focus on the person behind the podium. It is important that this piece of furniture not become a distraction or detract from the harmony of a spiritual setting.

The right church pulpit ultimately depends on the size and style of the room it inhabits. If you have a classic-style house of worship, a basic wooden lectern will probably fit in well. If you want one that has built-in sound capabilities we have a number of models that seamlessly integrate speakers into the podium structure so they maintain a basic style while serving a functional purpose.

For new-age churches and modern companies such as startups, a wooden model might seem to be a bit behind the times. For a more updated and unique look, acrylic podiums are an excellent option. Their sleek see-through material keeps eyes focused on the lecturer or presenter as the light appearance breaks down the barrier between the speaker and the audience.

When there is no space in the room for a freestanding model, but you still need a surface that is at a comfortable height for reading notes, a portable podium is the way to go. Tabletop lecterns can transform virtually any table-height surface into a speaking space. This arrangement is perfect for a room that is used for a number of different purposes where a podium is required on a regular but not constant basis. Portable models can easily be kept under a table, in a corner or in a storage closet without taking up very much space.

With a large congregation or student body, it is important to make sure that speakers and lecturers are heard loud and clear. With the aid of a microphone, you get great voice amplification without having to strain. We have mics in a variety of styles so you can find the arrangement that is best suited to your purposes and space.

The basic wireless microphone enables you to enjoy the benefits of amplification, even as you move around a stage or a room. While being able to move around is convenient, having to hold something in your hand can become a nuisance, especially when one is speaking for an extended period of time. Headset microphones provide hands-free use so speakers don't have to hold anything as they present. For those who prefer equipment that is more subtle, tie-clip mics can be clipped right onto the lapel where they are hardly noticeable.

In an age where technology is at everyone's fingertips, sometimes plain old speeches just aren't enough to entice a packed house. If you want to keep up with the times and draw a crowd, you need one of our versatile AV carts. With the capability to play digital slideshows from a laptop that is hooked-up to a projector, you will impress everyone as you provide multimedia demonstrations. With an audio visual cart, you can easily bring technology into the classroom, sanctuary or lecture hall.

Hertz Furniture is proud to bring you the Oklahoma Sound Corp's comprehensive collection of lecterns and podiums. These sleek user-friendly models are built to serve your institution through years of speeches, lectures, services and presentations. With the right furniture, you can make any presenter feel like a valued asset to your company, school or house of worship.
