Well, age should have nothing to do with it.

I think the amount of time needed is directly proportional to what is asked and how much is asked. Also in play is how available he is to do the study. Or how much he wants to do it.

Given the requirements of 1Timoty 3:1-7, though, he should be a mature Christian and have better than the layman teaching abilities which should point to a more rapid response.

Be respectful and give him a reasonable amount of time. Although what constitutes reasonable, is open to your interpretation.

But all-in-all, I think a week is reasonable, IMHO.
