Are you ready for the Poultry course?

Poultry farming Business Course

At the Greater Life Academy, we train our pastors, ministers and missionaries to develop a hands on approach to farming. Many end up in the mission field and have no skills to assist local people to help them selves. Taking poultry farming helps you to cquire transferable skills that can be used to teach other people both at home and abroad on how to be self sufficient or engage in poultry farming as an income generating business for their local church or ministry abroad (especially overseas).

Step 1 - Registration
