George was the husband of El­ma Mill­er.

He studied music in Buf­fa­lo and Ro­ches­ter, New York, then became a singing teacher.

Around 1869, he moved to Chi­ca­go, Il­li­nois, to join the Ly­on and Hea­ly Music Company. He became the music director at the First Bap­tist Church in Chi­ca­go, and it was in that city that he met leaders in the Gospel music field, such as George Root, Phil­ip Bliss, & Ira San­key.

At age 28, Stebbins moved to Bost­on, Mas­sa­chu­setts, where he became music director at the Clar­e­don Street Bap­tist Church; the pastor there was Adon­i­ram Gor­don. Two years later, Steb­bins became music director at Tre­mont Temple in Bo­ston.

Shortly thereafter, he became involved in evangelism campaigns with Dwight Moo­dy and others. Around 1900, Steb­bins spent a year as an evangelist in In­dia, Egypt, It­a­ly, Pal­es­tine, France and Eng­land. His works include:
