Pastor preaches for 24 hours straight

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/pastor_preaches_for_24_hours_straight_20100923/

Sounds riveting:

One of the youngest megachurch pastors in the country preached what may have amounted to half a year’s worth of sermons in 24 hours.

Executing what he called the craziest, most asinine ideas he’s ever had, Pastor Steven Furtick stood in front of a live Web audience on Tuesday and Wednesday, teaching from the Bible for 24 hours straight.

Though hours of sermons may have easily sounded like a snooze fest for some, the online event was a big draw for thousands who were familiar with the young pastor’s passionate preaching.

The Christian Post read my mind with the “snooze fest” comment. I don’t know anything about Elevation Church, and I’m always a little skeptical of “megachurch” designations. But here are the websites for the baby-faced Furtick and for his church.
