Apostle Batsiranai Java affectionately known as ABJ is a Senior Pastor, Leader, and Philanthropist. ABJ founded the Tabernacle of Grace Church in August 2005 and has watched it grow into an International Ministry under his stewardship.

In 2013 after a prophecy from Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo in Manzini, Swaziland, ABJ obeyed God and eventually started a Bible school that is affiliated with the Zion Christian University, USA. The school has produced hundreds of pastors, leaders and refined labourers in the Body of Christ. Its faculties range from certificate, diploma and masters.

ABJ is also a board member of Carolco Holdings, a mining company and Grace Metals.

Apostle java also owns a satellite TV channel known as ABJ TV and online ministry under Apostle B Java Ministry Facebook page and that runs on YouTube.

Apostle Java is widowed. He was married to the late Pastor and Member of Parliament, Vimbai Tsvangirayi Java, daughter to the former Prime Minister, the late Dr. Morgan Richard Tsvangirai.

Apostle B Java owns a water company that he co-founded with his late wife and an Australian partnership known as Vistma Water Tech, and a subsidiary company known as Rightdale Holdings.

The church leader and development proponent is also an author. By the end of 2020, he had authored books: The Voice, The Mysteries and Interpretations of Dreams, African Religion ABlessing or A Curse, and This Kind. The books are found on his online store and Amazon.

Apostle B Java runs a business empowerment desk known as Marketplace Millionaires. The Man of God, under this counter, believes that the church can add more than spiritual salvation. As he puts it, “a church is a place where minds are mapped and shaped for impact, creativity, skill and economic impact.”

Apart from being a Bible revelator, ABJ is gifted in the word of knowledge, word of wisdom, discernment, speaking in diverse tongues, interpretation of dreams, visions, and tongues.

On the 9th May 2002, Apostle Java fell in a 5-hour long vision. It was under this trance that he heard God giving him the mandate to bring an understanding of grace and faith. He was given a Bible as an emblem for preparing the Church for an eschatological move of God, a revival where Zimbabwe and Africa will lead the world in giving revelation knowledge with signs and wonders to the global world.

Recently, Apostle B Java was named among the Most Influential Leaders under 40 years in Zimbabwe. He was one of the two pastors included in that accolade by the Institute of Directors Zimbabwe.
