Central Weekday Preschool in Wendell, NC opened in 2010. The primary goal has always been to teach children about the amazing love of God. This is accomplished best when children and families feel that love through the warm, caring staff who have each committed their lives to Christ Jesus. Providing foundational learning skills to help each child grow is a vital part of preschool at Central Baptist Weekday Preschool.

Christian Yun

School Security Director
I am an accomplished security professional with a rich background in risk analysis, intelligence reporting, and security management. My experience spans roles such as Global Security Operations Manager at Red Hat, where I orchestrated the cohesive development of policies and procedures for the Global Security Operations Center (GSOC) and its stakeholders. My leadership extended to providing strategic insight and hands-on guidance to the team, ensuring efficient resolution of many different security concerns. Moreover, I led the charge in strategic planning, adapting the GSOC to accommodate business growth, site expansion, and evolving stakeholder needs, while consistently enhancing its capabilities.
Previously, during my tenure as Lead Security Operations Analyst at MetLife, I played a pivotal role in 24/7 security operations. My vigilant monitoring of global assets and personnel led to the identification and mitigation of potential security threats. I excelled in producing insightful intelligence reports for significant events within predefined timeframes, contributing to proactive threat analysis. My contributions extended to the development of comprehensive training programs, standard operating procedures, and job aids for the GSOC team, and I maintained a reputation for generating meticulous threat reports that informed the Global Corporate Security Team of potential risks.
Equipped with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, my educational foundation complements my practical experience. My commitment to excellence is underscored by an array of certifications from the Federal Emergency Management Association, International Security Training, Environmental Protection Agency, and the Department of Homeland Security – Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). My skill set includes risk analysis, security system protocols, team leadership, and training program development.
I stand dedicated to delivering superior security services that safeguard people and assets. My proven expertise, strategic vision, and unwavering commitment make me a valuable asset in any security-focused endeavor.

School Security
I am a dedicated professional with a strong background in safety and security, stemming from my academic achievements and personal experiences. I have an educational background in Criminal Justice from both Wake Tech and Appalachian State University, providing me with a solid foundation in the principles of law and order. As a former collegiate football player, I have learned the importance of teamwork, discipline, and determination, qualities that resonate in my approach to ensuring the safety of individuals within our community. My commitment to fostering secure environments extends beyond the professional realm. I joined Central Baptist Church in 2000, where I have been an active participant in the security team for the past decade. This hands-on involvement has afforded me a unique perspective on the safety needs of a place of worship and community gathering.
