About Earl and Arlene Stubbs


Earl and Arlene Stubbs have seen the fulfillment of many of their desires in the establishing of the Andhra Pradesh District and Bible College in 1988, the International Correspondence (ICI) ministry from 1994, and of a strong English-language Church in the Twin-Cities of Secunderabad-Hyderabad - ­the State Capital of Andhra Pradesh. They seek to encourage the pastors, church planting, and the Bible College ministry.
During the past 34 years, they have served in various capacities. But a large part of their ministry has been the pioneering of and pastoring of New Life Assembly of God Church, an English-language congregation in Secunderabad-Hyderabad, which meets in a rented former theater, with attendance around 6000 in 3 Sunday Morning Services.
