As I reflected on this pastor's statement, a couple of thoughts came to my mind. One is that his statement was a very personal one that indicated a preference that was important to him and was a value I needed to honor. An additional thought though was about what actually makes a chair a "church chair". Here is an expansion on those thoughts with three observations as to what really is needed for a chair to be labeled a "church chair".
Those who work in warm environments are sure to love this next category. Not only are mesh back chairs extremely affordable, but they also offer amazing comfort. Chairs in this category always feature mesh fabric backs for breathability. This allows cooling air flow to reach the chair's occupant while simultaneously providing substantial support. These chairs are also highly versatile as mesh back chairs with ergonomics for conference use, guest seating, and tasking purposes, have become incredibly popular in recent years. Chairs like the Wau Series High Back Mesh Chair by Eurotech are the epitome of high end luxury, making them perfect holiday gifts for any office environment.
A church chair is then finally a chair that works for your church in the worship space it is placed in. For example, there are churches that because of a limited amount of square footage in their worship area desire to squeeze as many chairs as possible into that area. It may be that a worship chair a bit narrower than the standard 20" wide chair is the one that works for them. Another church that may be holding their worship service in a room that also serves as a space for other purposes throughout the week has a need to stack their chairs at least once each week. It may be that a worship chair that is lighter in weight, handles easier and stores compactly is the chair that works for them. And yet another church needs chairs that will work both in auditorium style seating in rows and around tables. It may be that a "hybrid" chair is the chair that needs to be purchased. Please know the reality once again is this has little with the appearance of your church chair. Instead it simply has to do with what chair can serve multiple purposes for your church.
