Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council were cosponsors. Here's the full program. Part of the goal is to energize their base before the election.
I'm pretty sure Julaine Appling was there. I heard she was "in D.C. for a conference."
Here's what one featured speaker, Bishop Wellington Boone, had to say:

The New York Times, Think Progress, and Andrew Sullivan have more. Sullivan also has a report from a reader who attended the conference.
