Hi Christopher:

Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with sectsty --- and it doesn't seem to 
want to work with the memoir class (which I use).  In memoir, however, 
the vertical space after the section heading can be adjusted by making 
changes to the (memoir class) command:

where the argument is (usually) a stretchable space, like the default 
for sections: -3.5ex plus -1ex minus -.2ex
but you /could/ have a fixed amount like 1ex. But that might start to 
uglify things, depending on your font size for the document is, etc.

See pages 88-89 of memman.pdf.

Maybe someone else can help you with secsty or the deep mysteries of 
LaTeX internals governing sectional headings.

United in adoration of Jesus,
