Collegiate Collective

Top 5 Articles of 2017

We look back on 2017 and bring you a list of our top five articles of the year.

It has been a great year for us at Collegiate Collective. We’re consistently blown away at how God keeps growing our ministry. From a small conversation between Brian Frye and Rahul Agarwal in 2013 to a website with over 30,000 users this year, we’ve remained focused on the goal of elevating and advancing the gospel on campus.

We know we couldn’t do this without you. It is a “Collective,” after all. One of the biggest ways we’ve seen this realized is through our Facebook group. If you haven’t yet, please click and request membership by telling us a little about where you serve!

Without further ado, we’ll bring you our most popular articles of 2017!
