The Great Commission is to make disciples of Jesus who can make disciples of Jesus. The goal of the Great Commission does not change, though how we carry it out may. The only way the Great Commission will be fulfilled is by training indigenous Christ followers, thereby giving them access to unreached communities by meeting felt needs.
Training local churches in developing countries allows them to meet felt needs which can lead to permanent ministry in a community. When the community sees the local church as the source of help when they are hurting, the local Christ followers will have great opportunities to share the Gospel.
