New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will be a headline speaker at an annual conference later this month hosted by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, a conservative group chaired by Ralph Reed that emphasizes faith and family values.

The speaking gig at the group’s annual “Road to Majority” conference presents Mr. Christie with an opportunity to court an audience likely to comprise a key segment of the Republican base ahead of the 2014 midterms and, down the road, the 2016 GOP presidential primary contest.

Other conservative luminaries scheduled to speak — a list that includes a number of possible 2016 GOP presidential contenders — include GOP Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, GOP Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas of Texas, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, according to Politico.

The event is scheduled for later this month at the Omni Shoreham hotel in Washington, D.C.
