In 1994, Dr, McKenna retired as President Emeritus of Asbury Theological Seminary to write, speak and consult on subjects related to leadership in Christian higher education and ministry. In 2003, he retired as Chair Emeritus, Board of Trustees, Spring Arbor University.

As an educational leader, he served as Founding Chair for the Christian College Consortium (parent organization of the Council of Christian Colleges & Universities) and Secretary for the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities.

In 1980, he was a finalist for Secretary of Education in the Reagan Cabinet. As a religious leader ordained in the Free Methodist Church, McKenna has held positions as Vice-President of the World Methodist Council, Consulting Editor for Christianity Today, and a national radio commentator. In civic leadership, he chaired Governor Dan Evan's select committee to study gambling in the State of Washington and was honored as First Citizen of Seattle in 1976.
