Pastor Dewey Note: I found this message very interesting. Last month I preached at FBC in Glenwood, New Mexico and for part of my message I sat on the side asking the congregation questions and they loved it, I did what God told me to do. I also love to move around and go out into the congregation at times, to be more intimate with the folks. I want to make sure nobody is sleeping! LOL! I love to speak into the hearts of all. I love to show folks I really, really care about them. I am just a regular guy with a message from God and showing my love and care for all. I am not comfortable getting rid of the pulpit because I still use it.

From Josh Weidmann in CHURCHLEADERS:

“Let’s get rid of the pulpit,” were some of my first words when starting my first senior pastor role in 2009. I was preparing to preach every week, which was different than what I had done in the past. I knew I quickly had to find what was comfortable for me. Sunday comes with amazing regularity, so finding a setup that allowed for me to preach the Word of God unhindered was of first importance. I had been preaching for nearly 15 years by that point, but most of the time I preached without a pulpit. When I arrived at a venue to guest preach I would have them remove the pulpit; I would just stand with Bible in hand to speak. The weekly regime of preaching was going to require more notes than I  preached with prior to that point. I had to have space to lay out my notes, Bible, clock, and iPad (for control of my slides). 3 Reasons I Preach With a Table


We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old Testament and New Testament are the inerrant, inspired, and infallible Word of God.
God’s Word is the final authority for faith and life.
We believe there is only one God, and He has chosen to reveal Himself
as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
