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".
The more practical factors that one should consider include features like lumbar adjustment, height adjustment, and the spring tension at which the chair can recline. Good chairs should also come with a latch that prevents the chair from reclining at all. The top quality chairs will provide adjustable armrests. The armrests should be able to be adjusted in and out from the center of the chair, as well as up and down, and even the length of the armrests should be adjustable.
Folding chairs are a great solution to situations where chairs are necessary but not on a daily basis. For example, a multi-purpose hall in a school could be used for gymnastics displays as well as assemblies, chairs being set out and folded away as and when necessary. In a school environment you will generally find wood used as the preferable material for these chairs, although there are plenty of modern-day alternatives.
