   This imformation come from 1 Timothy 3. Now, since I believe that the church is a family. I believe that since we are talking about deacons and overseers, I think that the point of this is that the deacons and the overseers had to be examples. So, in this case, I believe that there is no need for these positions, but family can do these positions. I believe that both positions are not office positions, but only people who can lead by the example of Jesus Christ. And that position can be filled by everyone.
