Ninja Warrior Challenge – A SCHOOL’S OUT Student Celebration

American Ninja Warrior lands in Wylie, Texas, on Thursday, May 24th!

Waterbrook Student Ministries will be hosting two time American Ninja Warrior competitor, Jared Greer, and his traveling Ninja Warrior course on the WBF campus as part of the “School’s Out Cookout Rally” this year. Students will get an opportunity to try their ninja warrior skills on the course as part of this amazing evening.

Jared now tours the country with the challenge and the message that students can overcome obstacles in their lives. He’ll be sharing his story and encouraging students to persevere through difficult times in life.

This event is free to the public. It is a student ministry event, but parents are welcome to attend and cheer on students throughout the evening.

See the video clip below for a sample of the fun during this event. Then read on for more information about Jared Greer and his organization, Overcoming Obstacles.


I have been involved in athletics my entire life. In High School, I excelled in football, basketball, and baseball. I went to East Texas Baptist University to continue my athletic career. After graduating college, I was searching for a new athletic outlet. My students encouraged me to try out for American Ninja Warrior.

I made a short submission video and applied to be a contestant on the 5th season of American Ninja Warrior. I never received a callback and I assumed that dream had faded. A year later, I received an unexpected call from the shows’ producers asking me to submit another video for season 6. In the short span of a month, I trained, lost weight, filmed a video, and to my surprise, I was selected to compete in the Dallas Qualifying round of season 6.

When I took the stage, I felt like I was on top of the world and ready to “beat that wall.” Unfortunately, my season quickly ended with a log to the face and a splash in the pool. I had another opportunity in season 7, but that too ended earlier than I had hoped. These experiences have truly helped me see that my failures don’t define me. Through the failures on the course, I’ve been able to be a walking, real life example of someone who has gotten back up and kept on going.

I really want my story to be an encouragement and inspiration to people. I want them to know that they can overcome any obstacle that life throws at them and that we should never ever give up.
