Depends. 100 wpm if you're sticking to script. But if they're laughing at your wit, and you realise you left out a point you were going to make, and ad lib here and there, it goes down a bit. Say 20%.
Phil Campbell seems to do between 140 and 153 wpm. Andrew did 109 wpm on Sunday. I really hope I'm faster than 100wpm our we'll all be pretty bored.
We found 300 or so words was about 3 minutes when we were doing deputation.Simone, I talked to a friend of mine a couple of nights back and it turns out she's on the organising committee. At that time they only had 20 registered! They're hoping for a lot more to register in the last two weeks. BTW she sounded excited that you were coming.
Great! Who is that? I didn't expect it to be big. I was thinking 30-40 which they are probably on track to get. Any talks I write I usually end up giving at least 6 times in the end, which is pretty good value (I imagine missionaries have a better reuse rate!) Songs are better value than talks. They can get thousands of uses.

I didn't count how many some of our stories got used (we write 3 minute modules and string them together as appropriate). But a year's worth of deputation equals quite a lot of times, even though we had more than a dozen modules.My friend is Jeanette Loxton, we've been friends since school years. We were both at St Andrews in Toowoomba as kids.
My last talk was about 125 wpm which is about average for me I think. So at that rate I'd take 26 minutes to preach your manuscript.
Hey Simone, I may have missed an earlier post, but what are you speaking on? Julie is away at the moment at a womens retreat giving 3 talks on Gen 1-3... was feeling very nervous after having put in a lot of effort. Giving talks is fairly new for her, let alone in Spanish.
Talks in Spanish. That's a tough gig.I'm doing 3 in john - jn3, 6, 11.I've never had to do talks in a series before. Struggling to not be repeating myself. The passages are very similar.
