That looks very similar to the setup we have at our church firstchurchlove.com. We also have a pulpit which is a raised stand for preachers in a Christian church. The origin of the word is the Latin pulpitum (platform or staging). The traditional pulpit is raised well above the surrounding floor for audibility and visibility, accessed by steps, with sides coming to about waist height. It is mostly found in cathedrals or old churches and in your house apparently .
