Retiring church media leader to be honored at June 11 service

Louis Schueddig concludes 30 years of service as president of Alliance for Christian Media

The Rev. Canon Louis "Skip" Schueddig, D.D., who retires this month after 30 years as head of the Alliance for Christian Media, will be honored with a special ecumenical Evening Prayer service on Tuesday, June 11, at 6 p.m. at All Saints' Episcopal Church in Atlanta, Ga. The service will be followed by a reception.

Those interested in attending are asked to contact Rebecca Kurziak at the Alliance, 404-418-6772 or Rebecca@day1.org.

The Rev. Martha Sterne, priest associate and writer-in-residence at Holy Innocents' Episcopal Church in Atlanta, will preach at the service. Vocalist Frank Thomas will perform.

Schueddig, who was called as president and executive director of the Alliance's predecessor organization, the Episcopal Media Center, in 1983, has been a leader in church communications, media, and technology over the past three decades. He produced numerous film, video, and audio productions including several based on the works of C. S. Lewis.

Schueddig officially retired on May 1, and was succeeded last year as president of the organization by Peter Wallace, executive producer and host of the nationally syndicated radio program, "Day 1." The Episcopal Media Center and Day1 organizations merged in 2004 to form the Alliance.

An ordained Episcopal priest and an honorary canon of the Episcopal Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta, Ga., Schueddig earlier served as rector of St. Michael's Episcopal Church in Grand Rapids, Mich. He was educated at Northwestern University, earning a degree in radio, television, and film, and received his M.Div. from Virginia Theological Seminary, which last year bestowed on him an honorary doctorate in divinity.
