September 3, 2014 (LOS ANGELES, CA) –  A one-of-a-kind worship themed event, The I.D. Experience, inspired by the spiritual themes explored in the new faith-affirming and family drama, The Identical, is sweeping across the nation as churches plan worship events to tie-in to the movie’s theatrical release.

Featuring a customizable digital worship event kit, The I.D. Experience is designed to help church and worship leaders produce and promote a unique worship experience inviting the questions: What is my identity in Christ? Who am I called to be? And, how can I pursue my God given dreams?

The I.D. Experience made its debut at The Potter’s House in Ft. Worth, Texas, on Friday, August 20. Myron Butler, Minister of Music & Director of The Potter’s House Choir remarks, “The Identical is a thought-provoking movie that will encourage all to follow their dreams and their God-given destiny.” The second I.D. Experience event at The Potter’s House will take place at their Dallas campus this Friday, September 5.

CEO of Motive Entertainment, Paul Lauer, explains, “Finding and following one’s God-given calling is our greatest challenge in life. The I.D. Experience is an opportunity to create sacred space for your community – to slow down, listen to God, and be inspired to live courageously in faith.”

Motive Entertainment created the event kit and several organizations have come on board to partner and support The I.D. Experience including: Yamaha (who’s providing one lucky worship leader winner with a new Yamaha guitar valued at $1,400.00), PraiseCharts, Christian Musician Summit, Worship Team Training, Christian Guitar, Creator Worship, Worship Musician, MediaShout, Worship Band In Hand, The Worship Community, iTickets, The National Praise and Worship Institute, Front Gate Media and former worship leader for Saddleback Church, Rick Muchow.

The I.D. Experience will resonate with people in all stages of life. It is for teenagers just beginning to think through their relationship with Jesus, young adults trying to make big life decisions, and the more experienced who find themselves wanting more in their spiritual life. Church and ministry leaders can download the free event kit and signup to win a Yamaha guitar prize pack at

Branon Dempsey, CEO of Worship Team Training states, “This movie is a must see if you are serious about the worship life and worship ministry of your church.”



The Identical strs Golden Globe nominees Ray Liotta (The Place Beyond The Pines, Goodfellas, Field of Dreams) and Ashley Judd (Divergent, Olympus Has Fallen, Dolphin Tale), along with Emmy award-winning Seth Green (The Italian Job, Austin Powers, Dads, Family Guy, Robot Chicken) and newcomer music sensation, Blake Rayne. The full-length feature is produced by Mark G. Mathis (Precious), Yochanan Marcellino of City of Peace Films, Matthew Dean Russell, Coke Sams and Clarke Gallivan, along with Michael Edious Johnson, Yochanan Marcellino and Ray Liotta serving as executive producers.

Inspired by an original story by Wade Cummins, with a screenplay written by Howard Klausner (Space Cowboys), The Identical tells the story of identical twin brothers (both played by Rayne) who are separated at birth during the Great Depression. Despite their different upbringings, the boys share a similar passion for music, causing their lives to unknowingly intersect as they experience a powerful and mysterious connection often felt by twins.

The film also stars Brian Geraghty (“Boardwalk Empire”, The Hurt Locker), Emmy award-winning Joe Pantoliano (“The Sopranos”, Memento), Amanda Crew (Jobs, Charlie St. Cloud) and Erin Cottrell (lead actress in Michael Landon Jr.’s “Love Comes Softly” series).
