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. It was in Chi­ca­go that he would meet 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, Steb­bins be­came in­volved in evan­gel­ism cam­paigns with Dwight Moo­dy and oth­ers.

Around 1900, he spent a year as an ev­an­gel­ist in In­dia, Egypt, It­a­ly, Pal­es­tine, France and Eng­land.
