Gelton Morada comes from southern California where he considers 60 degrees to be cold, sweater weather. After graduating from Cal Poly Pomona with a bachelor's degree in accounting, he worked for an accounting firm for two years in Los Angeles. Before joining FOCUS, Gelton spent some time working different ministries at various churches and discerned religious life. You’ll typically find Gelton learning to swing and salsa dance, playing spikeball, leading bible studies, praying with students, or exploring the city catching Pokémon (go team mystic!). He’s excited to start his first year as a FOCUS missionary in New York and experience the New York winters.
