LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — An Arkansas priest is finding ways to take his appearance on the NBC reality show "American Ninja Warrior" — where his ninja name is "Father Flex" — and relate it to his role as a pastor.

Father Stephen Gadberry, pastor of St. Mary Church in Batesville and St. Cecilia Church in Newport, applied last December to be on the show, which allows everyday "warriors" to show off their skills in a series of challenging obstacle courses. The season began May 30.
