In order to better serve bereaved families, Sufficient Grace Ministries is expanding our services to include divisions of SGM throughout Ohio. SGM Regional Coordinators will be appointed to oversee the operations of each division of Sufficient Grace Ministries.
Regional coordinators are in charge of a sizeable region to be determined by each regional coordinator, President, and Vice President of SGM. They oversee the day to day operations of the determined area and report directly to the President and/or Vice President of SGM. Regional coordinators will be required to meet quarterly with the President and Vice President to
report any updates of their area. They are in charge of the volunteers in their area, which includes recruitment and assistance in training of support persons/doulas, photographers, and crafters of baby items.
In addition to overseeing all the operations, planning events, and securing funding for their division of SGM, regional coordinators are also responsible to take the SBD training, SGM trainings, and to carry out the duties of SGM/SBD Birth and Bereavement Doulas and SGM Remembrance Photographers. (Please click the highlighted links for further description of the duties of doulas and photographers serving with SGM.)
