How Long Should You Preach?

Ministry Matters™ | Blog | How Long Should You Preach?

Interesting read.  Where is the "sermon sweet spot?"

For me, I'm a pulpit preacher, I need something to reference to.  I am building myself up to move away from the manuscript and attempting to gain confidence.  My sermons (before a quality music program) were around 20-25 minutes.  Now that we have some quality music that fills out the service a little more, like an anthem every Sunday, I preach between 15-20 minutes.

I find youth are not a good barometer for how my sermon is doing because with iPhones and Kindle Fires, no one really looks up anymore, so who knows if they are really listening anyway.
