3: If you love cuisine, our culture and our community, you are going to love Covington’s newest restaurant, Prime by C3. Prime by C3 is more than just a restaurant, it’s a community serving others, and giving back. Prime by C3 serves up delicious prime rib, juicy angus burgers, grilled chicken, along with fresh salads and soups daily in a welcoming, energetic atmosphere. Prime by C3 was founded on these three principles: CONNECT, CONTRIBUTE and CULTIVATE with the goal of connecting with locals as well as those hurting in the community by contributing and cultivating relationships on a daily basis. Not only do you get a delicious dining experience, but 100% of Prime by C3’s net profit goes into serving a local ministry or organization each month. Prime by C3 is located at 326 Lee Lane in Covington. To make reservations, find out more about this ministry, or to get involved in the mission of PrimebyC3, visit their website

4: Have you been called to ministry, and are looking for tools that can help equip you while you lead or serve in the ministry? Leavell College, the undergraduate program of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, can do just that. Leavell College, an accredited college, has been offering various forms of undergraduate education to adult learners for nearly 40 years through courses on campus and online. With programs ranging from non-credit certificate to the baccalaurette level, Leavell College provides ministerial training that equips church leaders to be effective in their ministries. The curriculum provided by the college strikes a delicate balance between theory and practice as their academic emphasis helps to expand students’ minds, improve critical thinking processes, all while developing the practical skills and abilities they will need to do effective ministry. Visit for more information.
