What is the 2nd Thief?

It is an independent, responsive, and supportive Christian Ministry that collaborates with churches, ministries, and businesses. 

Our vision and mission is to declare the Good News of Jesus Christ.

"Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise."  -Luke 23:43 NKJV

Put it on your calendar. The Jericho Ride is all about praying down walls and lifting up our elected leaders to God. Join this ride in Harrrisonburg, VA, or stand up a ride in your area.

Leadership Conference Call
11 NOV 2023

The 2nd Thief Leadership team conducted a conference call to discuss initiatives and future events. Leveraging technology to pray and discuss the ministry as a whole, allowed us to see each other and discuss several points such as Care Packages for Law Enforcement, Future National Events, the Rough Riders (4x4) ministry, and other administrative details.

New East Region Director
Sent out 27 OCT 2023

As of last weekend it is official that 2nd Thief Riders has a new East Region Director. This decision came as Spider stepped down to focus on his local chapter. Ed was instrumental in drafting the latest By-Laws and continues to serve as the Chapter Coordinator for Pittsburgh. The new Director is John "Happy" Labriola. This offer was covered in prayer and inspired by the Holy Spirit. He prayerfully considered the offer and accepted to provide guidance and direction for the East Region Chapters. His first concern was ensuring that the chapters have a voice within the leadership of 2nd Thief. He was instrumental in the 2nd Thief Gathering at Gettysburg, PA 2022 and then the Gathering in Tennessee 2023. Please keep him and his family in your prayers as he chooses to serve the 2nd Thief Ministries community.  
2nd Thief Riders & Rough Riders Roll Call
Sent out 13 OCT 2023

A request for contact information was sent out to all of the chapter coordinators. This information will help us update our contact roster. This is the perfect opportunity to see who is still in the ministry and flying their colors. The story of the 2nd Thief on the cross next to Jesus resonates with people. I see and hear the story more often than ever. We need to continue to gather, encourage one another, and ride the Highways and Biways sharing the good news. Please help us reestablish our network, and share your events in your area with brothers and sisters from other chapters.

May the Love of Jesus prepare you for the work ahead, and may the Holy Spirit fill you and guide your steps and conversations.

Welcome to 2nd Thief 2.0!

     We have exciting news! We now have TWO branches of 2nd Thief Ministries.  The 2nd Thief Riders and the 2nd Thief Rough Riders!  The focus of the NEW Branch will be the same;  following Jesus and making disciples.  The Rough Riders will use 4x4 vehicles as the tool.  Think off-road trips, camping, s'mores around a campfire and wives and kids, etc.  We'll have a similar shield but with a jeep-like silhouette with Rough Riders at the bottom.  Shepard has the lead on the Branch's development, with Ministry leadership's support.
