Zack Zehnder of the Cross Church in Mount Dora spoke for more than 48 hours and 31 minutes to break the record.

According to his website, he started preaching at 7 a.m. Friday.

He didn’t stop until 12:21 p.m. Sunday, exceeding his goal to speak 50 hours.

Zehnder used the speech as a way to raise money for a new addiction-recovery program.

He raised about $90,000.

Zehnder got a five-minute break every hour, per rules set by the Guinness Book of World Records

He said that the record-breaking speech attempt is a creative way to spread God’s word.
