A Lake County preacher has broken a world record for the longest speech.
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.
