On Sermon Length

Ryan Huguley on sermon length:

I’ve gone for over an hour before and the only people more tired than I was after the fact were the people I’d punished by preaching so long. After 200+ sermons over the last four years, 37-40 minutes is my sweet spot. Less than that and I feel rushed, more than that and I did not prepare well enough.

I haven’t preached enough to know my sweet spot quite yet, but I do know my sermons need to be consistently shorter.
