It should be no longer than necessary!
It depends on the subject, some subjects take longer than others, it shouldn't be padded out to an arbitrary length.
However there has to be an upper limit - maybe 40 to 50 minutes. If it takes longer, then split it over two sessions.

Average attention span for a speech, sermon, etc. is about 20 minutes.

Most people can give a short message that is interesting, but very few can give a longer message that is worthwhile. At the COGs, too many of the speakers were deadly dull giving sermons.

I showed this survey to a UCG minister and he said he needed 60 minutes to get his message across. I didn't bother responding.

My choice isn't on the list. Zero minutes. There shouldn't be any.
