  1. Is Concordia New York theologically conservative/confessional Lutheran, and, if so, what is the basis for saying that?

  2. I deeply hope and pray they are able to overcome this and effect the necessary changes at their institution.

    Many schools across the country are facing enrollment decreases due to declining demographics of potential students and a strong economy, when males in particular often choose to enter the workforce or go to technical school rather than attend college. A convenience store chain in our area has signs in the men’s restrooms recruiting maintenance personnel starting at $75,000 per year, and they will pay all expenses and a salary while studying to send you to technical school to qualify.

    Having worked in student recruitment, such a probationary status, which the school is required to disclose, would present a significant challenge in that area. My prayers are with Dr. Nunes and all who are laboring to meet this challenge.
