“This month, we recognize Phil Romig III (Chip), a longtime member of Golden FUMC. Chip grew up in the church, and was a member of Boy Scout Troop 130. Chip has the honor of being an Eagle Scout with Troop 130. Chip received his Bachelor’s degree from Nebraska Wesleyan University in Religion and his Doctorate from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in Computer Science. After finishing college and university, he returned to his hometown, Golden, and is employed at the Colorado School of Mines. At CSM, he is their Chief Information Security Officer, an important role that protects CSM’s data and its networks from hackers and other threats.
Nowadays, he attends our church along with his wife, Deb, and his teenaged sons, Ben and Sam. Chip is the chairperson of the SPRC (Staff Parish Relations Committee), and he has recently (in the last six months) guided the committee while it conducted two “new hires” for our paid staff. Choosing new staff members is a time-consuming process, and we appreciate the time Chip has invested in making great choices for us!
