One of the main challenges that he faces as the Headteacher, is that the school is overwhelmed with the increasing number of needy children,i.e orphans who cannot pay the school fees, but believes that the provision of education is to be provided to every child no matter the circumstances, in order to grow the next generation leaders of our country.

His expectation for the Church Army Academy is to grow it to be among the best excelling school in Eastlands and in the country.
