Hank Paulson, founder
Hank was born in Holland and educated in Holland and England. He started ministry in 1971 in order to serve the church behind the Iron Curtain. The full story can be read in his book, Beyond the Wall. From the very beginning, partnerships and cooperative efforts with other like-minded ministries were an integral part of the ministry, leading to the establishment of services such as the Literature Information Service, Border Information Service, and Sensitive Information Service, which benefited the Eastern Europe mission community during the Communist era.

A new beginning...
In 2011, Paulson and a proven team of coworkers began a new ministry called 4D Ministries. Its aim is to work with indigenous ministries and networks of churches, taking partnerships and empowering nationals to a higher level, inspiring in the works of generosity and leadership development.
“It’s all about helping churches in Eastern Europe be fruitful and missional. The best way for 4D is not to grow “our” tree bigger, but to help networks of national churches be more outward looking and fruitful. More important than one large tree is God’s orchard of fruit bearing trees!” (Hank Paulson)
