try this: http://www.christianhub.com.sg

the site seems to focus on the non-denominational christian churches, though. you'll have to sleuth through their directory to find what you need.

There are some who are businessmen with MBAs flogging the Bible like the insurance agents.

Most Singaporean pastors are native English speakers or very fluent in English. Judging from your posts, I think the question you ought to be asking is "do you know of any cheap English language schools in Singapore where I can learn some basic English?".

:roll: Do you know what a native english speaker IS? I daresay, there are a few but damn few here. The biggest concentration will be the brothers at the novena church. They don't want "fluent English speakers" they are being very specific in as much as they actually want "Western" native english speakers.

I think it's rather silly as well, but there you go.

I would like to make two points.

Firstly, the OP has an atrocious command of English. Read her other posts. And she has to cheek to complain about how she was passed over for promotions in her office in her other posts. Isn't it obvious that if you write like a 8 year old Singaporean kid, you most probably would not get promoted?

Secondly, does native speaker means that you write/speak better than the average American/British? Or do we have to set the bar a little bit higher?

Ha ha

Obviously your command of English is not very good as well.
Please don't go around telling people off in the forum due to you having the mentality that you are some superior human being.
Never start a sentence with 'and'. I think your sentence should be 'Secondly, does native speaker mean that.............'

Look at all your posts, you can't even write a single sentence properly. Contrary to what you assert, "means" is the correct word.
