Is the great commission a task or a way of life? Are we to "do", "be", or something else with the great commission?
Will the great commission ever end, or will it continue in eternity?
I contend that the GC is a way of life. The kingdom of God is now and we are to be disciples. Disciples who make other disciples. Sorry, no mention of converts there. But, beyond this, if I beleive that the GC calls us to a lifestyle of making disciples, then I have to believe that this kind of activity goes on for eternity in heaven/new earth.
So, as a way of life, and not as a task, the GC will not be the prevailing theme of the emerging church, yet disciples, and converts (and yes that word is problematic also) will become.
So, go ahead and take it off your church letterhead, because no body is going to care about your task anymore. Just help people become
