How would I figure out drip irrigation for four raised beds, each 10x10... the water will come from a church 50 feet down hill from the garden. Is there a good site, or an expert I could use as reference?

We have a page with guidelines on setting up drip irrigation here: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/drip-irrigation-vegetable-gardens

Water use will, of course, depend on the plants grown in each bed, along with weather conditions, the maturity of the plants, soil composition in the beds, and factors to reduce evaporation such as mulching or the use of groundcovers.
