The word "tekton" is an ancient Greek term for craftsman, artisan, or builder. It was the word used to describe the profession of Jesus Christ. Eric Mann (the primary administrator of the network) uses it as his personal self-descriptor of his own profession. That being said, you DO NOT have to be a Christian to be a member of the network.
