House Church Central - Includes a discussion list, resources, and a directory.
LifeStream.org - Wayne Jacobsen's website (author of The Naked Church and Authentic Relationships: Discover the Lost Art of One Anothering)

BatteredSheep.com - Stories and resources for victims of religious abuse. (Lots of intense eye-openers here...)
3rd Day Churches - "a simple band of brothers and sisters, an unorthodox fraternity of pilgrims, and an adventurous fellowship of ‘permission givers’ who want to encourage one another in doing church differently, and hopefully more effectively in this postmodern third millennium". More good articles and resources.
Crushed Grapes - Frank Smith's website - lots of insightful reading material (we were recently graced by a visit from Frank at one of our Tuesday gatherings)
SimpleChurchConnect.com - Great Plains network of house churches connected with DAWN Ministries and focused on church planting.

TheReal Church.com - Andy Zoppelt's website devoted to house church issues and theology. Lots of thoughtful, well-written articles.

OutofBabylon.com - John Schmitt's website, where he presents his theological and doctrinal positions. Some of his views fall a bit outside the framework of mainstream Protestantism (beware! you may be strongly challenged by some of his ideas), but he is always open to discussion and debate (which is one of the reasons we love him!). Of particular interest is his discussion of "Passion Week" Chronology.
