Born: January 24, 1763, Jeinsen, Germany.
Died: June 21, 1841, Herrnhut, Germany.
Son of a farmer, Garve was educated at the Moravian schools in Zeist, Holland, and Neuwied, at their Pädagogium at Niesky, and their seminary at Barby.
In 1784 he was appointed a tutor at Niesky, and in 1789 at Barby. But as his philosophical lectures were unsettling, he was sent in 1797 to arrange the documents of the archive at Zeist.
After ordination as diaconus of the Moravian church, in 1799 he was appointed preacher at Amsterdam; in 1801 at Ebersdorf (where he was also inspector of the training school); in 1809 at Berlin; and in 1816 at Neusalza an der Oder (now Nowa Sól, Poland).
Feeling the burden of years and infirmities, he left the active ministry in 1836 and retired to Herrnhut.
