As we begin to unpack all that is DisciplesNEXT, we first look to where this whole thing began: the 2020 Vision. In this conversation with 2020 Vision for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) author and former General Minister and President, Rev. Dr. Dick Hamm, he and Rev. Dr. Jose Martinez will unpack all that has led to where we are now and what is next for the New Church movement in our tradition.
