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 comes to earth 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. Read more.
Two seminars are available and can be delivered as half-day/evening workshops or incorporated into your conference or retreat. God Conversations covers how to recognise God’s voice generally and Awaken Your Dreams focusses specifically on how to recognise God’s voice in dreams and visions. The seminars are biblically based, emphasise the accountability of the local church and are both inspirational and practical. If your church is new to this area, it is recommended that you host God Conversations Seminar as a foundation, before following it up at a later time with the Awaken Your Dreams Seminar.
If the seminar format does not suit your church/community (we recommend a target of 30% attendance), consider a weekend with Tania to launch The Other Side of the Conversation 6-week DVD Bible Study series (contains the same material as the God Conversations seminar) that will train your whole church in small groups.
For Leadership: A foundational component of the ministry is to facilitate hearing God experiences within the accountability and safety of the local church. Working with leadership is the key to building healthy church culture. Hence, for those who are hosting a God Conversations seminar (see above), a meeting with leadership teams on how to be “The Church who hears God’s Voice” is recommended. This interactive session draws on both Tania’s PhD studies and ministry experience and looks at how to create a community that enables all its members to hear God’s voice in a way that is both theologically orthodox and pastorally safe (Read More).
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 fully qualified to 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. Drawing from her own unique leadership journey, Tania inspires and encourages women to be released into their gifts and callings (Read more).
For Men: While God’s heart was for both men and women made in his image to steward the earth and represent his heart together, human rebellion has led to power struggles and gender inequalities both in the church and in our communities. Tania speaks to men about how they can play their part in working alongside women to build the kingdom together. (Read more).
For Singles: With singles now forming nearly 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. Q&A sessions in this area are also popular. For this topic, we ask that married leadership attend so that all can support one another in community (Read more).
For the Community: As an experienced pastor and leader, Tania speaks on issues of personal development and success. The Awaken Your Dreams Outreach aims to reach spiritual seekers in your wider community with the message that God may be speaking to them in their dreams. Another popular topic is “Success from the Inside Out” where Tania draws on the wisdom of her own spiritual journey and applies it to corporate and community settings in an informed and relevant way.
