There are a number of non-traditional churches and networks emerging in the US. Here is a sample of them.

Francis leads a house church movement in the Bay Area and provides intensives and trainings alongside it. It’s worth looking at and seeing how they organize house churches.

Based in Columbus, OH, Xenos Church is the largest home-based church I’ve found in the US. They have 150 home communities that meet with close to 3000 people in attendance weekly. They do a weekly meeting for all their leaders. Everyone else meets in homes.
