Yes it will run,but you don,t need to,you want have water pump,alternator,and will hurt your motor if you run it hot.

not more than several minutes as no water pump moving to cool engine, not to mention power steering loss

Thanks for the response . I know that about it over heating etc. I just wanted to know if it should start as is. If so, the frozen AC pump wasn't the problem, and I will have to keep troubleshooting it. Any other insight would be appreciated.

Most of the time, if a vehicle will not start after being run, it's the fuel pump. You need to check the fuel pressure and see if there's spark whenever it won't start. Actual fuel pressure - not a spurt from the schrader valve but a fuel pressure reading.
