God Conversations is a global ministry that equips people to recognise and respond to God’s voice through training, resourcing and speaking events. Led by Pastor Tania Harris and her team, the ministry serves local churches, ministry training colleges and community gatherings of all ages and denominations.
The Scriptures reveal a deeply personal God who longs for communication with his people. Throughout biblical history he is seen speaking, initially through the prophets, and later through his Son Jesus (Hebrews 1:1,2) who is described as God’s word ‘in the flesh’ (John 1:14). While on earth, Jesus promised that after his death and resurrection, he would send his Spirit who would remind us of the foundational truths that had been established (John 14:26) as well as speak of things that were ‘yet to come’ (John 16:13). That promise was fulfilled on the day the church began – as the Holy Spirit was poured out all people; young and old, male and female. Now all God’s people could hear from God – just as the prophets of old did (Acts 2:17).
Jesus said that we would be able to recognise his voice (John 10:27) and it is within the accountability and safety of the church community that we learn to do so (Acts 15:28, 1 Cor. 14:29). It is the mission of God Conversations to equip everyone who longs to know God personally to recognise his voice, and that in doing so, they may find the courage to follow.
“My people recognise my voice, I know them and they follow me” (Jesus, from John 10:27).
God Conversations Events
For Churches: Pastor Tania Harris, founder and director of God Conversations, speaks at churches, conferences and youth events adapting the ministry to a variety of formats. The goal is to equip every person to hear God’s voice for themselves. Two tailor-made seminars are available as half-day or evening events: The Other Side of the Conversation (how to hear from God) and Awaken Your Dreams (how to hear from God though dreams and visions).
For Leadership: A foundational component of the ministry is to facilitate hearing God experiences within the accountability and safety of the local church. Tania thus works with leadership teams to build a culture where all members are experiencing God’s voice in a way that is both theologically orthodox and pastorally safe.
For Ministry Trainees: The teaching of God Conversations is available as a short course or higher education subject in a ministry training setting. As an experienced educator and qualified at Masters level, Tania is able to tailor the material to meet accreditation requirements at tertiary students.
For Women: While the teaching on hearing God’s voice is central to the discipleship of both genders, this area focusses on the ministry needs of women in particular. Tania draws on her unique leadership journey to speak to women, inspiring and encouraging them to be fully released into their gifts and callings.
For Singles: With singles now forming half our church populations, there is a growing call to minister to the specific needs encountered in this season of life. Tania speaks about how to flourish in every season of life and how to fulfil God’s call regardless of marital status.
For the Community: As an experienced pastor and leader, Tania speaks on issues of personal development, applying the wisdom of her own spiritual journey to community contexts in an informed and relevant way.
