The primary reminders from the conference was embodied by the three topics covered. Namely answering the question of "What is the big picture?", ie: What is God's Purpose in dealing with man?, Why do we exist? and What is your reason for living? secondly: the preaching of the gospel of the Kingdom of God, and thirdly the process of preparing a people. Also covered was the topic of the unfinished business of Israel.
